Welcome to Dr Proton’s website !

Proton Therapy is a key weapon to treat tumors because protons can deliver a higher dose of radiation into the tumor, while sparing healthy surrounding tissues. This is especially critical for children or for tumors located close to organs at risk.

Unfortunately, Proton Therapy is not yet widely available.

SAH Care was established to ensure that patients from across the world can have access to the best treatments available. We work tirelessly with local physicians and a global network of leading healthcare providers to bring excellent quality cancer care to our patients. Our team, partners, and supporters share a commitment to improve the delivery of high-quality, patient-centric cancer care.

The right treatment for the right patient at the right time.

Through travel medicine, we have found a way to provide access to advanced cancer care for those who live in areas where proton therapy centers are yet to be built. We believe that patients deserve to receive the most advanced cancer treatment in the world today despite geographic boundaries and limitations. When faced with a frightening cancer diagnosis, patients gain comfort in knowing they are being treated by some of the most experienced proton therapy physicians and scientists in the world today. The SAH Care team provides this compassionate, comprehensive care to patients wherever they live.

Dr Proton shares the latest information about Proton Therapy, reviews patients cases, and advises on the appropriateness of Proton Therapy.

About

Khadija, a 4-year old girl with a cancerous brain tumour, had been referred by her Bahraini oncologists to SAH Care to receive Proton Therapy after surgery and chemotherapy.

The Bahrain Ministry of Health knew Proton Therapy would be an ideal modality of radiotherapy for Khadija. It would substantially minimise the amount of radiation penetrating normal developing brain tissue.

The SAH protocol of making every patient and their family relax and feel comfortable went into action. The SAH Team took care of every single detail from transportation and accommodation, to surgery and medical appointments.

Khadija received “walk-in walk-out” 40-minute proton therapy treatments five days a week and weekly visits were held with Dr Thornton.

During her treatment course, Khadija felt really good. She created a nickname for Dr Thornton and called him “Dr Proton” to make him laugh.

Thus, the name “Dr Proton” was born.
