At Ackerman Cancer Center, the patient-centric approach to cancer treatment places you at the center of your care. Your treatment plan is designed to meet the unique needs of your cancer and your lifestyle.

There are many different treatment approaches depending on the type of leukemia or lymphoma which may include chemotherapy, targeted therapy, stem cell transplant, immunotherapy, vaccine therapy, radiation therapy, or a combination of treatment therapies.

Treatments offered at Ackerman Cancer Center 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.
