Advanced Radiation Treatment for Prostate Cancer
Located in the pelvis, surrounded by other sensitive organs, the prostate poses a great challenge for radiation oncologists, who must target the tumors while minimizing doses to surrounding, healthy tissue.
The most advanced facility of its kind in Southern California, Scripps Proton Therapy Center uses precise radiation treatments to help overcome these challenges. Protons deposit their highest radiation directly in tumors, reducing exposure to healthy organs and tissues.
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.
