PROTON THERAPY

What is proton therapy?

Proton therapy is a therapy for the treatment of cancerous ulcers, i.e. malignant tumours. Proton beams are generated and accelerated in a synchrotron or cyclotron, for example, and shot specifically at the tumor….

Why proton therapy?

Proton irradiation allows higher effective doses to be administered to the tumour, with much fewer side effects at the same time…

Course of Treatment

Prior to making a final decision about your eligibility for treatment, we invite you to come in any case for a preliminary medical consultation.

DIAGNOSTIC

The diagnostic preparations are essential for a targeted and successful irradiation. Each step requires a high level of precision and thoroughness, which is why diagnostic takes a total of two to three days…

FOLLOW-UP EXAMINATIONS

Specific follow-up examinations are required by the terms of the proton center’s operating license. Your attending physician at the RPTC will schedule this basic series in cooperation with your general practitioner or referring physician…

RADIOTHERAPY

Once the therapy decision has been made (and reviewed if necessary), the radiation target area has been defined, and all the necessary preparations have been made, the actual treatment can begin…

RECOVERY

If you received proton radiation only, you should feel fairly normal. You should experience little to no radiation sickness, and if you are employed, you should be able to resume working right away…

COMBINATION THERAPIES

In principle, nearly any therapy can be combined with nearly any other therapy. The possible increase in therapeutic benefit must be weighed against the additional side effects before proceeding with combination therapy…

RADIOTHERAPY SESSION

In order to keep the treatment time as short as possible, you can be irradiated daily, except on Sundays. Sunday is needed to maintain and control the system. On all other days – including public holidays – the RPTC is on duty at least 12 hours a day from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m…

ABOUT US

Who are we?

We are a group of independent doctors on the Iberian Peninsula, Spain and Portugal, the Balearic Islands and the Canary Islands. Under the name CONSILIUM® we show the possibilities of proton therapy and help patients to receive this treatment after prior clarification.

Proton therapy is a scientifically founded form of cancer treatment, but it is completely unknown to wide sections of the population – we want to remedy this situation. 

What we do

In the case of cancer, time is an essential factor. CONSILIUM® begins with an immediate review of the patient’s medical history, a review of the therapy protocol, rapid contact with the RPTC proton therapy centre, any necessary additional findings and subsequent referral to proton therapy.

Currently, there is no treatment option with protons on the Iberian Peninsula. Patients entitled to proton therapy treatment are therefore referred to the centre with the most experience in Europe, the RPTC in Munich (Germany).
