Patient Stories from the UH Proton Therapy Center
Proton therapy is highly advanced form of external radiation therapy that uses robotic technology and an image guidance system to deliver a precise, focused beam of radiation to cancerous and non-cancerous tumors or lesions.

University Hospitals is the only provider in Northeast Ohio to offer this innovative treatment option.
