The highly skilled personnel of the Institut Curie's Proton Therapy Center, which is a reference center in the treatment of certain eye tumors and cranial base tumors, also treat patients with chordomas, chondrosarcomas, rare bone tumors, meningiomas and related tumors, and nasopharyngeal tumors.
In each case, the patient is first told of the planned therapy and is given an information booklet and fact sheets.
