Proton therapy is a much less invasive alternative, recommended for numerous types of cancers that historically have been treated through traditional approaches such as surgery, chemotherapy and X-ray radiation. Located in San Diego, California Protons Cancer Therapy Center is at the forefront of medical care, research and biotechnology. With more than 50 years of combined proton experience, our world-renowned doctors leverage revolutionary cancer-fighting treatments and tools to treat both common and very rare cancers.
REVOLUTIONARY TUMOR RADIATION TREATMENT
Precisely delivered within 2 millimeters, our intensity-modulated pencil beam scanning technology, offered in all five treatment rooms, releases a high dose of cancer-killing radiation that conforms precisely to the unique shape and size of the tumor. This highly targeted technology attacks the tumor with laser-like precision, while sparing surrounding healthy tissues and organs.
