The West German Proton Therapy Centre in Essen (WPE) is one of the leading institutions for proton radiotherapy in Germany and one of the most advanced proton therapy centres in the world. Here, a team of specialists: doctors, radiographers and medical physicists, work together to treat patients with sensitive or deeply located tumours that are either difficult or impossible to operate on.
Tens of thousands of patients, especially those with tumours in the eye, brain, spine and pelvis, have already been successfully treated with protons worldwide – and that with almost no side effects. Proton therapy on tumours in children has the main advantage of putting less stress on the immature, sensitive tissue. The treatment of children is, therefore, a focal point at the WPE.
The WPE is a subsidiary of the University Hospital Essen and works closely with neighboring hospitals and institutes. For many years, oncology is the main field in the clinical, research and education departments at the University Hospital Essen. Therefore, the WPE is embedded in the largest oncological centre in Germany – the so-called West German Cancer Centre (WTZ) – and benefits from the expertise of all oncology disciplines.
