Our regional centers help you overcome the barrier of traveling for quality cancer care. We also have the Emily Couric Clinical Cancer Center located at the main hospital.
Giving Second Opinions
Our goal in offering second opinions is to ensure your cancer is treated precisely, in the right place at the right time. UVA cancer doctors carefully review each new case, look at all the options we have for treating the cancer at UVA and tailor a treatment plan specific to each patient’s illness.
A Team Approach
Our teams of medical and surgical oncologists, radiologists, researchers, oncology nurses, palliative care doctors, social workers, nutritionists and patient educators work together as experts in their respective areas to provide comprehensive care for our patients.
Supporting Family & Caregivers
We recognize the vital role that family and caregivers play throughout a patient’s cancer journey. Counseling and educational materials are available to caregivers so they have the support they need to stay emotionally strong, healthy and focused on the patient.
