Proton Therapy Center Prague
The Proton Therapy Center Prague is one of the most advanced medical facilities in Europe, which offers the very latest and accurate form of radiotherapy currently available. The center opened its doors to cancer sufferers in 2012 and has since treated patients from over 48 different countries, including the United States, Spain, Israel, Kenya and Australia. Internationally recognized as one of the most advanced cancer treatment centres of its kind in the world, it combines ultramodern technology with clinical competence and compassionate individualized patient care.
With 5 dedicated treatment rooms, the center has the capacity to treat about 2,500 patients each year. 3 of these treatment rooms have movable devices that are capable of 360-degree rotation around patients. This means tumours can be treated anywhere in the body, from any angle, up to a depth of 32cm. One of the rooms offers "fixed beam" treatments, while the final room is specially designed for eye treatments.
Equipped with state-of-the-art technology to precisely plan and conduct proton therapy procedures, the medical facility aims to provide all our patients with the highest level of treatment effectiveness, as well as the highest standard of comfort and patient care.
In addition to proton therapy cancer treatments, the center is fully equipped with a wide-range of stand-alone diagnostic services (MRI, CT, PET-CT), and has the ability to provide onsite chemotherapy in combination with proton therapy. The patients suffering from prostate cancer can undergo all the necessary urologic diagnostic tests within the center. The experienced and highly competent urologists carry out fiducial marker insertion procedures prior to proton therapy.
All treatment procedures comply with the strictest international requirements, while all patients are provided with the highest standards of service and care.
The medical facility employs only highly professional experts who have long clinical experience in a particular medical field. In addition, the center maintains close cooperation with the leading Czech universities and other educational institutions supporting science and research with the aim to contribute to the development of radiation oncology and other oncological specializations.
