Benefits of Proton Therapy

Radiation Therapy with Less Side Effects

Beaumont’s Proton Therapy Center is one of the most innovative and comprehensive image-guidance systems for proton beam therapy available today, offering patients a safer cancer treatment option with less side effects.

Proton therapy is a high-tech alternative to conventional radiation therapy (X-ray radiation), offering greater precision to destroy cancerous cells and spare adjacent healthy tissue with less side effects. Beaumont was the first to offer a Proton Therapy Center in Michigan.

With proton therapy at Beaumont, our team of proton specialists scan the tumor with the proton beam, spot-by-spot, layer-by-layer. The nearby healthy tissues and organs receive significantly less radiation dose, resulting in less damage to healthy tissue and decreased risk of secondary malignancies.
