Precise Radiation Therapy for Sarcomas
Sarcomas are tumors that form in soft tissue or bone and can be found throughout the body. Depending on where they occur, sarcomas can be difficult to treat with radiation because it can strike healthy tissue near the tumor.
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 doses directly in tumors, reducing exposure to other organs and tissues. As a result, patients may experience fewer side effects and a reduced risk of secondary cancer.
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.
