Treatment options for malignant brain tumors include: surgery, radiation therapy, radiosurgery, chemotherapy, and targeted drug therapy.

Patients receiving brain tumor treatment at the Center can be assured they have access to the most up-to-date, highest quality neurological cancer treatment available.

Options include:

Proton therapy is one of the most precise, advanced radiation treatment modalities available today. In traditional photon radiation, the x-ray beams travel through the tumor destroying both cancerous and healthy tissue along the way. Proton therapy provides a more efficient solution by utilizing charged particles (protons) to penetrate the tissue and deposit nearly all of their energy directly at the tumor site, thereby reducing damage to surrounding areas.

Ackerman Cancer Center is proud to be the world’s first private practice offering its own proton beam technology. While proton therapy is not right for every patient, the radiation oncologists at Ackerman Cancer Center will consider all options when developing your personalized treatment plan.
