At the University of Florida Health Proton Therapy Institute, patients are guided through each step of the treatment process with compassion, understanding and unequaled expertise.
No two patients experience cancer the same way. That's why, at the UF Health Proton Therapy Institute, we provide each patient with a treatment plan that fits his or her individual needs at every step. Your personal team of physicians, nurse case managers, therapists, physicists and intake specialists will work together to care for you along the way.
Effective cancer treatment with a lower risk of severe side effects.
For patients facing many types of cancer, proton therapy offers an effective alternative to traditional radiation.
What makes proton radiation different?
Proton radiation can be directed to reach only the areas of the body that are affected by cancer. This leads to more accurate therapy, with less risk that healthy tissue will be exposed to radiation - and this can reduce the risk of complications and side effects.
Fewer treatment complications mean that physicians can deliver higher doses of proton radiation to cancer sites, and an increased dose of proton radiation can improve the chances for a successful outcome.
