The South Florida Proton Therapy Institute (SFPTI) is a radiation oncology center that opened in 2018 on the campus of Delray Medical Center. The addition of the Center further expands to level of comprehensive oncology services at Delray.
Led by Medical Director Tim R. Williams, M.D. and featuring some of the most innovative technology available, SFPTI provides those in Palm Beach County and the surrounding communities with a tremendous new resource in the fight against cancer.
We treat a variety of cancers using traditional X-ray radiation therapy, which directs photon beams to a tumor through the body’s surface. We administer treatments using the TrueBeam® Radiotherapy System, which is manufactured by Varian and considered one of the most effective tools in the fight against cancer.
Beginning in summer 2019, SFPTI will have the ability to treat patients with the ProBeam® Compact single-room proton therapy solution from Varian. The ProBeam® Compact allows us to take the next step in revolutionizing cancer care by delivering ultra-effective, high-quality proton therapy treatment plans.
By using proton therapy, we are able to better target and destroy cancer cells, while minimizing the risk to surrounding healthy cells and tissue. This approach is a true game-changer when it comes to treating cancer, and the results are remarkable.
Nearly all cancers — including lung, breast, prostate, head and neck — can be treated with X-ray radiation therapy if necessary.
