Yesterday, we broke ground to expand MD Anderson Proton Therapy Center. The expansion will more than double the size of the center, allowing us to treat more patients with the most advanced and precise form of radiation therapy. “Our physicians and international cancer experts continue to push the boundaries to provide the most innovative care to our patients, and now we are working to provide increased access to that care so even more people can potentially benefit from this important treatment option,” says Dr. Peter WT Pisters, MD Anderson president. “As more patients become eligible for proton therapy, we want to make sure that those who need access to protons have the opportunity to receive them.” Swipe through to see more photos of the groundbreaking. #endcancer
