Cancer Treatment with Proton Therapy

Proton Therapy is the treatment method that destroys cancer cells by using an accelerated high energy proton which is the nucleus of a hydrogen atom. The accelerated proton beam passes through body tissues and transfers most of their energy to cancer tissues and subsequently stops to minimize unnecessary radiation exposure to normal tissues.

Types of cancer can be treated with proton therapy:

- Lung
- Liver
- Brain tumor
- Head & neck

Brain Tumor Center

Latest treatment methods:

- Intraoperative navigation systems
- Neuro-endoscopic surgery
- Mobile computed tomography (CT)
- Brain tumor fluorescent staining (5-aminolevulinic acid)
- Intraoperative neurophysiologic monitoring
- Intensity-modulated radiotherapy (IMRT), Image-guidedradiation therapy (IGRT), and Gamma Knife radiosurgery

Breast Cancer Center

Latest treatment methods:

- Oncoplastic breast surgery
- Personalized treatment (cancer scan, AVATAR mouse)

- Chemo Therapy
- Targeted Therapy
- Proton Therapy
- Radiation Therapy
- Surgery

Liver Cancer Center

Latest treatment methods:

Along with hepatectomy, liver transplantation, radiofrequency thermal ablation, chemoembolizationof the hepatic artery, chemotherapy (targeted therapy), radiosurgery, and radiation therapy, the Liver Cancer Center has now begun to offer liver cancer cryotherapy.

Lung and Esophageal Cancer Center

Latest treatment methods:

Interventional bronchoscopy, surgery, chemotherapy, radiotherapy (3-dimensional conformal radiotherapy; 3DCRT),intensity modulated radiotherapy (IMRT) tomotherapy, bodystereotactic radiotherapy (SBRT), proton therapy).

Uncommon Cancer Center

Latest treatment methods:

The primary treatment for NETs is radical resection. Depending on individual conditions, it is combined with targeted therapies and chemotherapies using octreotide, lanreotide, pasireotide, interfereon-α, everolimus, and sunitinib. In case of liver metastasis, transcathter arterial chemoembolization or radiation therapies may be considered. Recently, the latest drugs are also adopted to treat NETs as part of clinical trials.
