We always use a support service and a medical interpreter arranged by EAJ.

This is to ensure that you are able to understand the method of treatment well and receive treatment with peace of mind, free from concerns that might arise from factors such as the unfamiliar language, medical care customs, or living environment.

We are not able to assist in arranging visas or accommodation which you may require in order to receive proton therapy at our center.

Please consult with EAJ for assistance with immigration requirements, living arrangements, or other such matters.

After receiving proton therapy

We request that communication with the Proton Beam Therapy Center after your treatment is complete is carried out through your local doctor.
