Fight cancer, millimeter by millimeter, and protect yourself with one of the safest and most effective radiation treatments in the world. Located in San Diego, our center has the power, technology and expertise to deliver proton therapy with unmatched precision. Precision proven to spare healthy tissues, lower the risk of secondary cancer, reduce side effects and result in strong cure rates.
Compared to standard X-ray radiation and other treatments, California Protons offers patients:
Proton beams can be manipulated to conform to the unique size and shape of the tumor and stop at its edge precisely.
Doctors can vary the intensity of the radiation dose at any point within the tumor to optimize treatment.
Patients with tumors that are larger, more irregularly shaped or found near critical organs or structures can be treated.
Reduced radiation to healthy tissues lowers the risk of secondary cancer.
Diarrhea, nausea, headache and loss of appetite are less likely.
Our treatment plans can be loaded into the computer and completed in a matter of minutes.
