For tumors occurring in or near the spine, conventional radiation carries risk. It can release excess radiation into the nerves and tissue that control your ability to see, hear and move.
With its pinpoint precision, proton therapy can release an optimal radiation dose into the spinal tumor while minimizing damage to vital, healthy cells and potentially preventing long-term side effects.
Spinal tumors we treat:
- Desmoid tumors
- Ewing’s sarcomas
