A FOCUSED TREATMENT FOR CANCER
Proton Therapy was pioneered in the United States more than 50 years ago. By the end of 2018 it had been used to treat more than 170,000 patients. Over the past decade, Proton Therapy has emerged as the most effective treatment method for a variety of cancers. Because it is a more accurate method for delivering radiation to the site of a tumor, proton therapy allows doctors to use a higher dose of radiation, without the risk of damage to surrounding healthy tissue and organs. Proton therapy patients experience relatively few harmful side effects and are able to maintain a high quality of life during and after treatment.
