University Hospitals Seidman Cancer Center Announces $30 Million Proton Therapy Center
Date:5/17/2011

in Littleton, Massachusetts, have led to the development of this first-of-its-kind more compact and less costly model that provides the latest proton therapy delivery system in a single vault (one room) installation. The Monarch 250 is in the final developmental stages with FDA approval anticipated in the near future and several other centers around the globe have plans to implement the system.

When this new initiative is complete in 2014, it will add another dimension to the state-of-the-art therapies at the UH Seidman Cancer Center, which is opening a freestanding, 150-bed cancer hospital on the UH Case Medical Center campus in June and is part of the National Cancer Institute-designated Case Comprehensive Cancer Center.

"Building a proton therapy center is a huge boon for our patients as well as this entire region," says Stan Gerson, MD, Director of the UH Seidman Cancer Center and the Case Comprehensive Cancer Center. "Our new cancer hospital brings a wealth of diagnostic and treatment technologies under one roof to provide the nation's most advanced cancer care and this new proton therapy center is the next tool in our arsenal. This novel system with its compact nature will be fully integrated within the Seidman Cancer Center."

Proton therapy has the ability to minimize damage to delicate tissues surrounding the cancer itself.  This is particularly important when treating hard-to-reach malignancies, such as certain brain, head and neck and pelvic cancers. The technology will complement UH Seidman Cancer Center's existing, state-of-the-art photon-beam based radiation therapy services, which include Synergy-S Hexapod, Cyberknife, TomoTherapy and Perfexion Gamma Knife.  UH is one of the only cancer centers in the country to offer such a broad range of advanced photon-based radiation technology under one roof.

"With the addition of a proton beam facility, we will be able to offer a full array of the latest in cutting edge rad
