Proton Beam Therapy 

Proton beam therapy, available at Shands Jacksonville, involves the delivery of tightly focused doses of electrically charged particles called protons to destroy tumors, with little or no damage to adjacent healthy tissues. The treatment is an effective way to target tumors in children and has the potential to increase cure rates while reducing complications. Through an established partnership with the University of Florida, Wolfson patients have access to this form of radiation therapy.
