Scripps Proton Therapy Center's use of pencil-beam scanning technology enables doctors to precisely manipulate and direct the proton beam so that its energy conforms exactly to the unique size and shape of the tumor.

Scripps is the first in the nation to offer all-pencil beam #proton technology in each of our five treatment rooms.

Skin cancer is more common than you may know. An estimated one in five Americans will develop skin cancer in their lifetime, according to the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD). And young people are not immune. Melanoma, the most serious type of skin cancer, is one of the most common cancers to strike people under the age of 30.

While Melanoma accounts for less than 2 percent of all skin cancer cases, it causes a large majority of skin cancer deaths. According to the American Cancer Society, approximately 10,000 people are expected to die of melanoma in the United States in 2015.

The following skin-saving tips can help protect you from sun damage:
1. Wear sunscreen daily.
2. Use clothing that offers SPF protection.
3. Avoid tanning beds.
4. Stay out of the sun during peak hours, between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.

And to aid early detection:
1. Watch for atypical moles.
2. See a dermatologist annually for a thorough full-body exam.

“The best strategy to defeat skin cancer is to prevent it entirely, or to detect it as early as possible,” says Dr. Hubert Greenway, Jr., chairman of Bighorn Mohs and Dermatologic Surgery at Scripps Clinic Torrey Pines.

Scripps Medical Response Team (SMRT) members who have been in #Nepal providing aid for just over a week felt the 7.3 magnitude earthquake yesterday that triggered a new wave of deaths, injuries and damage in a country still reeling from the one on April 25 that killed more than 8,000.

All five SMRT members are safe and continuing their courageous work with people who desperately need their help. To date, they have treated more than 1,000 patients.

After spending the last two and a half weeks caring for earthquake victims in remote villages in Nepal, members of the Scripps Health Medical Response Team (SMRT) are preparing to return home. Throughout the deployment, the Scripps responders provided care to approximately 2,230 patients in at least 13 isolated, mountainous villages that in most cases were accessible only by helicopter.

“We look forward to coming home, but feel a great sadness to leave a country that is still in such need of humanitarian help,” said Patty Skoglund, SMRT member.

They are medical heroes who have extended this organization’s legacy of delivering compassionate, healing care to people at their time of greatest need. We can’t wait to have them home!

Here’s good news for anyone who has tried unsuccessfully to lose a significant amount of weight: in January 2015, the FDA approved a new type of weight-loss treatment unlike anything previously available. Vagal blocking therapy (VBLOC) controls your appetite without medications or traditional bariatric surgery.

Involved in the two clinical trials that proved the efficacy and safety of the VBLOC device, Dr. Mark Takata answers three important questions:

1. What makes VBLOC therapy so unique?
2. How does VBLOC therapy work?
3. Who is a good candidate?

His answers here: http://www.scripps.org/news_items/5266-new-weight-loss-treatment-could-curb-appetite?utm_source=SOCIAL.

Dr. Takata says, “Successful weight loss depends on finding the treatment that best fits your goals and your lifestyle.”
Scripps Center for Weight Management offers a new therapy called VBLOC, which controls appetite without medications or bariatric surgery.

We don't need treatments that fit into our lifestyle. We need to change our lifestyle and eating/exercising practices to be healthy!

Truth: Nearly twice as many women die from #heartdisease than ALL forms of #cancer combined.

4 things to know about women and heart disease:

1. Heart disease is the leading cause of death among women.

2. Heart disease affects men and women differently. Estrogen is thought to offer some protection against heart disease. After menopause, women no longer have this protection so they tend to get heart disease late in life than men. Heart size is another factor.

3. Women have different heart attack symptoms than men.

4. Not all fat is bad for your heart.

In recognition of National Women’s Health Week, May 10-16, get the facts about cardiovascular disease in women and learn ways to reduce risk factors: https://www.scripps.org/news_items/5144-4-things-to-know-about-women-and-heart-disease?utm_source=social.

For the third time in a decade, the Scripps Medical Response Team has deployed to help victims of a massive disaster. In 2005 the team provided Hurricane Katrina medical services and again in 2010 following the Haiti earthquake.

Five team members are currently providing medical support to those affected by the Nepal earthquake. Here’s an update on what the #ScrippsNepal team is doing to help: https://www.scripps.org/blogs/front-line-leader/posts/5259-notes-from-nepal-updates-from-the-scripps-medical-response-team?utm_source=SOCIAL.
