For Patients and Family Members

Proton therapy is a special kind of radiation therapy. For many years now, patients suffering from certain tumour diseases have successfully undergone proton radiation therapy at the Paul Scherrer Institute’s Center for Proton Therapy. 

On the following websites we will give you a more detailed explanation of how proton therapy works and provide practical information on the treatment we offer at our facility. We will include a step-by-step description of the way in which we treat deepseated tumours. If you have further questions on the proton therapy carried out at the Paul Scherrer Institute, please do not hesitate to address these by getting in touch with our patient office
