Precision. Protection.
Peace of Mind.

That’s the Emory difference.

Conveniently located in the heart of Atlanta, Emory Proton Therapy Center is Georgia’s only proton therapy facility serving patients in the Southeastern U.S. and beyond, delivering the most advanced radiation treatment for specific tumors and cancers. The facility was founded in December of 2018 and has treated almost 3,000 patients with proton therapy since its inception.

Paired with the extensive resources of Winship Cancer Institute of Emory University, our team combines advanced pencil-beam scanning proton therapy and renowned medical expertise to create a treatment plan that aims for fewer side effects and improved quality of life. Emory Proton Therapy Center can help you take on your tumor or cancer with precision and peace of mind while providing the greatest protection of normal healthy tissues.

Precise Tumor Treatment

All five of our treatment rooms utilize pencil beam scanning technology to deliver proton therapy, the most precise form of radiation. A narrow stream of protons is steered by a magnet to “paint” the radiation to match the size, shape, and depth of the target. This allows for what is called intensity-modulated proton therapy for maximum flexibility in treatment planning and sparing up to 60% less radiation to healthy tissues and organs, which lowers the risk of side effects and long-term effects.

A Facility That Facilitates Healing

After checking in at the front desk with our warm and welcoming staff, patients and visitors are invited to relax in a hotel-like space boasting natural sunlight and city views. Our lobby features an open concept waiting area, café, outdoor patio, restrooms, and a children’s play area, which was designed to make our pediatric patients and children visiting with patients feel comfortable.

Our center is equipped with five treatment rooms, all outfitted with the most advanced pencil beam scanning technology. Four rooms are equipped with a gantry that can rotate 360 degrees around the patient so that the proton beam can be directed from any direction required and tailored to each individual patient’s needs. One fixed-beam room is specially designed for the treatment of prostate cancer. Our center houses a state-of-the-art imaging suite for optimal accuracy, featuring MRI and CT technology, as well as a Pediatric Anesthesia Care Unit to care for our youngest patients.
