Proton Therapy Center

The proton therapy center is under construction in midtown Atlanta. When it opens, it will offer the most advanced radiation therapy available and usher in a new era in cancer treatment.

The proton therapy center, currently under construction, will be the first center of its kind in Georgia to offer patients access to this new, state-of-the-art radiation therapy.

The facility, located in Midtown Atlanta, will be staffed by physicians and other highly skilled proton therapy professionals from Winship Cancer Institute and Emory Healthcare.

Proton therapy is the next generation of radiation oncology. It uses protons to precisely treat cancerous tumors throughout the body. The technology minimizes radiation to the healthy tissue surrounding the tumor and provides a more effective treatment with fewer side effects. The FDA approved therapy is used to treat adult and pediatric cancers including: brain, eye, head and neck, lung, spine, breast and prostate.

The proton therapy center is currently under construction. For patient care questions, please contact (404) 778-3473For media inquiries, please contact (404) 778-4580.
