BRAIN TUMOURS

 PROTON THERAPY MAINTAINS A QUALITY OF LIFE FOR TERESA FROM UK

The brain is the most complex and important organ within the human body, and coordinates all vital functions such as breathing and the heart. It is the source of our thoughts, feelings and senses.

The most advanced proton therapy facility in the world is in Prague today and currently treats patients from the UK, Germany, Norway, Turkey, Serbia, Russia and many other countries.

WHY PROTON THERAPY?

Conventional radiation therapy of brain tumours is dangerous, because there is a high risk of damaging sensitive structures such as the eye, optic nerves and hearing centres. Excess radiation doses to these areas can cause permanent health complications after treatment has been completed.

This significantly reduces quality of life for patients who, although no longer bothered by the brain tumour, are instead bothered by the debilitating side effects of the treatment itself.

Proton therapy reduces radiation exposure to surrounding tissue by 50% compared with conventional radiotherapy, thereby preserving vision, hearing, intellectual ability, and endocrine functions.

Proton therapy treatment is more effective, safer, faster, and does not restrict the lifestyles of patients. The treatment itself is painless and is not usually accompanied by nausea, loss of appetite or other complications.
