Targeted Treatment for Breast Cancer
Scripps Proton Therapy Center provides the most advanced radiation treatments for breast cancer in Southern California. Proton therapy allows for precise treatments by tightly focusing radiation on diseased tissue and reducing doses to adjacent, healthy tissue. This accuracy often allows oncologists to limit radiation to neighboring structures, such as the heart, lungs and bone. As a result, proton therapy may reduce the risk of side effects and secondary tumors from radiation.
The clinical and scientific teams have more than 90 years of combined experience treating patients with proton therapy. Learn more about the experts at the center.
