Proton Therapy Center

Provision CARES Proton Therapy Center is the first cancer treatment center of its kind in Tennessee and only the second in the Southeast. We provide the perfect combination of personalized, comprehensive patient care and leading-edge technology, offering one of the most advanced non-invasive cancer treatments in the world.

Proton therapy is an advanced form of radiation therapy that uses a single beam of high-energy protons to treat various forms of cancer. Just as with conventional radiation therapy, proton therapy treats tumors by directing radiation into the tumor site where doses of radiation destroy cancerous cells.

However, unlike conventional radiation therapy, in which x-ray beams deposit their energy into the healthy tissue before and after the tumor site, physicians can control the timing and dosage of energy from protons, which allows the maximum energy deposited directly into the tumor, reducing damage to nearby healthy tissue and thus limiting negative side effects.

How It Works

Our treatment rooms use pencil beam and uniform scanning, which further increases the precision of radiation, reducing overall treatment time and allowing the tumor to be directly targeted with aggressive doses of radiation in a safe way.
