While I can't comment on individual treatments, this sounds like a fairly 
conventional treatment...and the number of treatments is fairly well specified 
as well. You might be able to get away with fewer treatments...but the 
conventional wisdom as learned from thousands of patients before you is to go 
with the protocol.
