PROTON THERAPY FOR PROSTATE CANCER

Target Prostate Cancer, Maintain Quality of Life

One of the most advanced forms of radiation therapy, proton therapy is a highly effective treatment for prostate cancer with a much lower risk of short and long-term side effects.

With the cutting-edge science of proton therapy, doctors can precisely target the tumor while minimizing damage to surrounding healthy tissue and organs. Unlike standard X-ray radiation, which relies on photons to reach cancer cells, protons deposit their radiation directly into the tumor and then stop. With no exit dose, radiation exposure is reduced with proton therapy and patients are able to maintain their quality of life both during and after treatment.

PROTON THERAPY FOR PROSTATE CANCER

Treating Prostate Cancer with Proton Therapy

With millimeter precision, proton therapy delivers radiation directly into the tumor. Radiation exposure to surrounding healthy tissues and organs, such as the bladder, rectum, and bowel, is drastically minimized, resulting in a much lower risk of side effects.

In most cases, patients can go about their normal routine before and after each treatment. By minimizing excess radiation to unaffected areas, the likelihood of debilitating side effects like gastrointestinal issues, incontinence, and impotence, is significantly reduced. Clinical studies show that proton therapy results in up to 60% less radiation to the rectum, bladder, and bowel, and up to a 97% chance of non-recurrence.

Pencil Beam Scanning

At ProCure, we use the most precise form of proton therapy to treat prostate cancer. Pencil Beam Scanning precisely controls protons to place the Bragg Peak, the point at which protons deposit their maximum energy, directly into the tumor. The ultra precision of this technology makes it an ideal treatment for tumors of the prostate, including irregularly shaped or complex tumors located next to critical tissues and organs.

In addition, we also offer SpaceOar Hydrogel, a temporary injectable gel that acts as a spacer to protect the rectum in men undergoing radiation therapy for prostate cancer. Once in place, it typically cannot be felt and is usually absorbed within three months before being naturally cleared in the urine.

LEADERS IN CARE
