About the Marjorie and Leonard Williams Center for Proton Therapy at the Orlando Health Cancer Institute

Proton therapy harnesses the power of the proton – a positively charged subatomic particle – to treat cancer. At the Orlando Health Cancer Institute, our Center for Proton Therapy brings this superior cancer treatment to those who need it the most.

Historically, proton therapy was too expensive for widespread use. But advances in technology now make it more practical on a wider scale. Still, the Orlando Health Cancer Institute is one of only a few centers in the United States offering this treatment.

Our radiation oncologists are highly regarded for their knowledge and experience. Through clinical practice and research, our experts are improving the lives of many and further proving the benefits of this exciting treatment.
