What is Proton Therapy?

Proton therapy is a technologically advanced method of radiation therapy that uses high beams of energy to treat cancer by destroying the cancer cells while minimizing damage to the surrounding healthy tissues.

How it works

1) Energization of the particle

Protons have a greater mass than photons used in standard radiation therapy which allows them to be energized.

2) Burst of Energy

After entering the body, protons slow down sufficiently after interacting with electrons and release a burst of energy.

3) Increased precision and greater dose delivery

Proton therapy can be planned in such a way that this burst occurs at the exact site of the cancer, reducing damage to healthy tissues.  

4) Minimum side effects and quicker recovery

Proton radiation also allows physicians to offer better treatment management that leads to faster recovery times and less side effects. 

Types of cancer that can be treated

Many types of cancer can be treated using Proton Therapy such as,
