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.

World leader in Medicine Promotes Proton Therapy

With the Mayo Clinic building two large proton therapy centers in the US, another world leader in cancer care and research has recognized the benefits of this innovative and highly effective therapy, despite the costs associated with it. John Noseworthy, CEO and president of the Mayo Clinic, explains the decision for proton therapy with its medical effectiveness and the benefits to the patients. The decision was made, after six years of evaluating numerous papers, studies and results from thousands of cases treated with proton therapy, showed that proton therapy increases the effectiveness of cancer treatment while sparing surrounding tissue and key organs.
