Brain tumors are, obviously, surrounded by delicate and vitally important tissue. Treating these tumors with conventional therapy poses risk of neurological deficits, hormonal deficiencies and intellectual impairment.
Because proton therapy is so precise, brain tumors can be carefully targeted with higher doses of radiation that pose less risk of long-term injury to surrounding tissues. There are also fewer immediate side-effects, helping you maintain a better quality of life and cognitive function during treatment.
Some of the brain cancers we treat include
- Arteriovenous malformations (AVMs)
- Low-grade, high-grade and recurrent gliomas
- Pineal tumors
- Pituitary tumors
- Tumors of the base of skull
- Vascular malformations
