Proton beam therapy peculiarities at the PTC in the Czech Republic

Nowadays proton beam therapy is considered as the most advanced and safe method for cancer treatment both for adults and children. It affects only tumor/tumor cells, not damaging normal tissues. Proton beam therapy has minimum side effects, low complications risks and high results.

At the Czech Proton Therapy Center radiation therapies vary from 5 to 40 sessions in accordance with the patient’s diagnosis. While the procedure is conducted once a day, the hospitalization at the Center is optional. One session of proton beam therapy lasts not longer 60 minutes. The whole course of treatment at the Center takes from 2 to 8 weeks.

The only exception for hospital stay is for children. Moreover, the proton beam therapy in children is performed under anesthesia, as they are very active and cannot stay immovable for a long time.

The patient was treated in this clinic

I liked it all very much. A modern building, there is a parking near, a beautiful form of the staff. They are courteous and considerate. Knowing Latvian, it is not so easy for me to describe some of the nuances (I do not talk much with anyone about these topics), but meeting me, they spoke with me in my native language. I gave an assessment of "good", but still had to evaluate "excellent." Perhaps, because the prices for a pensioner are too high.

The patient underwent facial rejuvenation

Dear All, I just wanted to express my thanks and appreciation for the wonderful treatment and care you all showed to me following my and my wife recent Treatment . Before I came into hospital for the treatment, I was very nervous and daunted by the fear of the unknown but you were all so kind and reassuring when I arrived which took away a lot of my apprehension. You demonstrated your total commitment into caring for me and my wife and also gave us the support and encouragement we needed to take our first steps on the road to our treatment which meant so much to me. I’d like to particularly thank Dr.Fahad Mawlood, Dr.Yaroslav and Marta who provided me with round the clock nursing care .These were members of the team whom I saw on a daily basis and whom I became particularly close to during my stay in the hospital. However, I’d also like to thank all the other people, too numerous to mention, who all played such an important part in my treatment and recovery. As doctors you’ve gone above and beyond everything I ever would have expected. The world would be a much better place if all of the doctors were like you. Thank you so much for everything that you have done. Because God could not be everywhere he made sure that we have doctors like you who have the gift of healing mankind. I am so thankful to you for treating me so tenderly. I feel very healthy now. Thank you so very much. Thank you all once again for all your care and support.
