Apollo Proton Centre, Chennai


Apollo Proton Cancer Centre located in Chennai, India is South East Asia's first proton therapy centre. The 150-bed integrated cancer care hospital equipped with state-of-the-art infrastructure, superior technology, highly advanced treatment procedure and a powerful medical team delivers a 360-degree comprehensive cancer care. Proton therapy is one of the most advanced forms of radiation therapy in the world that uses high energy proton beams to target tumours with utmost precision. Unlike conventional X-Rays which damage healthy cells along with the tumour, protons have a precise focal point that causes minimum tissue damage and maximum tumour damage. This helps in a much better quality of life post-treatment.

Proton therapy is best suited for the treatment of a wide range of cancers including brain tumours, skull base tumours, prostrate tumours, gastrointestinal tumours, thoracic tumours, head, neck and eye tumours. It is also a highly proven treatment method for paediatric cancers.
