The evidence supporting proton therapy

Proton therapy is firmly established as an advanced and highly effective treatment for cancer. The technology is supported by a large body of evidence and the overwhelming consensus of the medical community.


In addition to our center, the first in New York State, there are approximately 30 operational proton centers and 10 under construction around the country. The technology has been approved by the FDA since 1988 and used effectively for decades, including by our hospital partners.

Driving new breakthroughs
The New York Proton Center is making a considerable investment in and commitment to research in proton therapy. Together with our partners at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, Montefiore Health System, and Mount Sinai Health System, we will continue to generate leading-edge research on proton therapy and drive best-practice guidelines.
