If you have cancer, Hampton University Proton Therapy Institute (HUPTI) may be able to help. We provide innovative care for a variety of localized cancers — even some that other proton therapy centers are not currently treating. Our therapy also offers the dexterity to often be used in conjunction with chemotherapy or surgery. However as important as the technology, are the people that make up HUPTI. Technology is at the forefront of what we do, but the people are what truly make HUPTI unique. Our compassionate and dedicated team of physicians, therapists, nurses and other healthcare professionals, make it their business to ensure you’re comfortable and well cared for.
