Learn about Advanced Treatments for Cancer
Advances in cancer treatment are being developed every single day. Our team of experts know these treatments well and in their experienced hands, new treatments become aggressive tools that fight each patient’s cancer head on. Our oncologists, hematologists, surgeons and physicians have been on the front line of fighting cancer for decades. When they use highly targeted surgery, radiation and proton therapy, chemotherapy and other innovative, advanced cancer treatments, they become weapons that attack early and late stage cancers and complex diagnoses. Our mission and our goal is to battle all types of cancer with skill and deep compassion for every patient.

Conditions Treated with Proton Therapy
Proton Therapy is highly effective at targeting cancerous cells while limiting damage to surrounding healthy tissues. It is an exciting technology that captures the space age promise of lasers and the exacting science of tumor disintegration. Proton Therapy is especially successful in shrinking and killing localized cancers.
We are at the forefront of using Proton Therapy in innovative ways to fight a variety of cancers including brain and spine, breast, gastro-intestinal, head and neck, lung, prostate, other adult and pediatric cancers. In fact, we are experiencing treatment success with cancers that other Proton Therapy centers have yet to explore.
How Proton Therapy Works
Radiation, or x-ray therapy, irradiates the cancerous tissues and the tissues around it because it cannot be highly targeted. In some cases, this causes a lower level of radiation to be used to fight the cancer in order to preserve healthy tissue. Proton Therapy can be very narrowly targeted, just like a laser beam, to irradiate the cancerous tissue without impacting the surrounding healthy tissue. This technology has greatly expanded the ability of physicians to fight cancers that were previously difficult or impossible to reach, such as those in the brain, spine and neck.

Other effective cancer treatments
Our hematologists, oncologists and surgeons create the most effective treatment plan for each patient using many different, proven cancer treatments, either singly or in combination. Some of the treatments we use include:
- Bone Marrow Transplants
- Surgical Procedures
- Hematology and Oncology
- Targeted Therapy
- Radiation Therapy
- Advanced Diagnostics Imaging
- Clinical Trials
- Pediatric Oncologic Specialized Treatments
Each patient is unique and each case is highly specific. Our Medical Team will provide a personnalized treatment plan which may include Proton Therapy, conventional radiotherapy, surgery and chemotherapy. For example, in some cases, we may recommend the use of photons rather than protons because they can be more effective for the particular patient.
