UH Proton Therapy Center
Proton therapy is an effective treatment option for both children and adults with certain cancers. This innovative, technologically advanced therapy is used worldwide to treat cancer, and we are pleased to be the first to bring this advanced form of radiation therapy to Cleveland, Ohio.
When used in the treatment of specific tumors, proton therapy can decrease side effects, which may result in a better quality of life during treatment, and has the potential to reduce the risk for developing radiation-induced secondary cancers decades after treatment.
This leading-edge technology further enhances the advanced treatment options available to you or your loved one at University Hospitals Seidman Cancer Center and the Angie Fowler Adolescent & Young Adult Cancer Institute at University Hospitals Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital.
While proton therapy is not appropriate for every patient, UH Seidman Cancer Center offers the complete spectrum of leading-edge treatment options for every type of cancer. In addition to advanced radiation therapy technologies, such as proton therapy, linear accelerator and Gamma Knife® radiosurgery, our dedicated cancer doctors use innovative surgical techniques, chemotherapy and other treatment options to help cure cancer.
UH Seidman Cancer Center is a founding member of the National Cancer Institute-designated Case Comprehensive Cancer Center at Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine. This means our patients also have the opportunity to participate in more than 300 clinical trials, giving them access to innovative treatments not widely available at other cancer hospitals.
