Major procedures & Services
Proton Therapy Center
NCC Proton Therapy Center, the first hospital-based proton beam therapy facility in Korea provides “state-of-art” proton beam therapy for cancer patients. Proton therapy uses high-energy protons accelerated to 60% of the speed of light to eliminate the cancer cells. It can target cancer cells delivering precise and higher radiation doses while significantly reducing the damage of healthy tissue surrounding the tumor. Proton therapy is usually used to treat prostate cancer, liver cancer, lung cancer and brain tumors in children. Since we started proton therapy in March 2007, we treated about 950 patients and obtain 6 patents about proton therapy.
Why PBT on Prostate Cancer?
Firstly, although still a relatively newer cancer treatment, proton therapy has already shown promise in the treatment of prostate cancer. Thanks to more accurate targeting of tumor, the physician
can deliver full or higher doses. Secondly, PBT is a non-invasive, painless procedure as well as minimal amount of radiation to tissues surrounding the prostate can reduce patient risk of experiencing side effects. Thirdly, proton therapy doesn’t require any recovery time and poses a minimal risk of side effect. In fact, men are generally able to continue their life style while undergoing this prostate cancer therapy.
