Proton Therapy Treats Cancer Differently
The Maryland Proton Treatment Center (MPTC) is the first center in the region to offer proton therapy – a highly advanced and precise form of radiation – to treat cancer.
With proton therapy at the Maryland Proton Treatment Center, patients now have a new tool in the cancer-fighting toolbox. MPTC offers the most advanced form of proton therapy in the world – called pencil beam scanning. This technique is highly effective for a wide variety of solid, localized tumors in adults and children.
Since proton therapy delivers an increased dose that stops specifically at the tumor site, it protects much of the surrounding, normal tissue. It’s painless, non-invasive and well tolerated which often times leads to fewer side effects now and in the future.
At MPTC, our core mission is excellence in patient care and more than 90% of Maryland Proton Treatment Center patients describe their experience as “very good" or "excellent." We are honored to offer you our expertise to achieve the best outcomes for your cancer treatment.
