The Normandy Proton Therapy Centre

Proton therapy is a form of innovative radiotherapy to improve the effectiveness and limit the toxicity of certain treatment. The proposal for proton therapy treatment at the François Baclesse Centre is a care offering on a national scale.

It will be the third site in France where this therapeutic treatment will be proposed after the Centre d'Orsay (Paris region) and Nice. Given the scarcity of this type of equipment in France, the François Baclesse Centre will offer this therapeutic option to people living in the north, west and south west third of France, or even to patients from abroad.
