What is Proton Therapy:
Proton beams are particles generated from hydrogen gas which have been accelerated to near the speed of light by a powerful machine called a synchrotron. The proton beams can be focused to accurately target cancer cells with minimal impact on surrounding muscles and tissues, meaning it is possible to reduce the risk to healthy tissues. More than 130,000 cancer patients have been treated with proton therapy world-wide. Established in 2011, Medipolis Proton Therapy and Research Center has treated 2,339 patients as of December 2017 with favorable results.
