About the offer

Proton therapy is a non-invasive approach to treating spinal tumors, utilizing proton beams to focus on and eliminate abnormal cells. Before undergoing proton therapy, patients complete a comprehensive assessment that involves reviewing their medical history, examining their physical condition, and consulting with a radiation oncologist. Lab tests, including a complete blood count (CBC) and blood biochemistry analysis, are conducted to evaluate the procedure's suitability. An MRI scan of the spine and other tests are also carried out to create a treatment plan. The proton therapy begins with pre-procedure patient preparation and 3D radiation planning. It helps ensure that the proton beams accurately target the tumor and that healthy tissue is protected. As a rule, the therapy is administered as an outpatient treatment. After the treatment, patients receive post-procedure care and symptomatic treatment to manage any side effects or discomfort. Proton therapy can be used as a standalone treatment or in conjunction with surgery, radiotherapy, or chemotherapy, tailored to each patient's needs. The advantages of proton beams encompass accurate tumor targeting to fewer side effects. In addition, it can result in improved patient outcomes and a quicker recovery, which is especially beneficial for patients who are not candidates for surgery or require more precise radiation therapy.
