How proton therapy is different

Proton therapy is a noninvasive, targeted form of radiation therapy that can effectively treat many types of tumors, even those considered inoperable or too difficult to treat with traditional radiation therapy. Proton therapy’s precision enables our experts to deliver a maximum radiation dose that stops precisely at the tumor site with an accuracy of less than a half-millimeter, sparing much of the surrounding healthy tissue.

Our physicians will work with you and your care team to create a treatment plan that’s right for you. Request a consultation below to learn if proton therapy might benefit you.
