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.

Recovery

If you received proton radiation only, you should feel fairly normal. You should experience little to no radiation sickness, and if you are employed, you should be able to resume working right away.
 

Regardless of how well you might feel, you should still give yourself time to recover fully. This is absolutely essential following combination therapy. Your attending physician will also explain any special creams or salves you may need to apply to the skin in the irradiated area and give you any necessary prescriptions.

There aren’t any hard-and-fast rules about what you should or shouldn’t do following treatment. Of course, your doctor will tell you about any precautions associated with treatment of particular organs or types of tumors. Absent any specific instructions, we recommend you eat and do whatever you most enjoy during your recovery.
