About us

The RINECKER PROTON THERAPY CENTER

The RPTC, located in Munich, is the first fully certified European proton radiation center which provides a complete hospital setting for the treatment of cancer tumors.

Our innovative therapeutic procedure involves the use of high-energy proton beams for the treatment of cancer. A key characteristic of these proton beams is that protons facilitate the three-dimensional targeting of tumours; this capability is not available with the x-rays used in conventional radiation therapy. Therefore, highly effective dosages can be delivered to the tumour while the side effects of radiation are reduced by minimizing any trauma to the surrounding healthy tissue.

Follow-up examinations

Follow-up examinations

Specific follow-up examinations are required by the terms of the proton center’s operating license. Your attending physician at the RPTC will schedule this basic series in cooperation with your general practitioner or referring physician. Depending on the type of cancer, you may need some very specific follow-up as well, such as seeing a urologist once you have completed treatment for prostate cancer.
 
There are also many local follow-up protocols; in Germany, they tend to be grouped under organizations like "Tumorzentrum München.” Tumor centers will suggest detailed, medically sound follow-up schedules.
 
Your physician will give you all the details on your prescribed/recommended follow-up schedule on your discharge instructions. A letter detailing your ongoing treatment schedule will also be sent to the personal physicians you specify.
 

You, as the patient, also have a role to play. It is important that you provide feedback on how your treatment is progressing. Each radiotherapy center must receive the records from your follow-up examinations. This not only acts as an internal check for the proton center, but also keeps you safe and benefits future patients.
