How to Prepare

First appointment

Your first appointment will be a consultation. Prior to your visit, a member of our care team will call to discuss what to expect and what you need to bring. We will let you know if we need to collect additional medical records, lab work, or imaging reports before you arrive.

You may want to fill out the paperwork prior to your consultation. Easy directions and a map will help guide your route to the center.

If you are traveling from out of town, our patient support services staff can help you arrange travel, book lodging, and transportation.

First treatment

Your physician and nursing staff will provide instructions for you to prepare for your first proton therapy treatment. Timing and duration varies depending on the patient and type of cancer. A typical cycle includes daily treatments, Monday through Friday, for six to nine weeks.

Our patient support services staff can assist you with personal needs while you are here, including accommodating children and schoolwork to other family members and pets.

Texas Center for Proton Therapy is ready to help you fight cancer with one of the nation’s most advanced cancer-fighting technologies.
