Cancer Treatments

Cancer Treatments

Only a few centers in the nation offer patients the array of advanced technology available at UVA Cancer Center. Our state-of-the-art facility includes:

  • The nation’s first HD Helical TomoTherapy unit
  • An integrated CT/HDR Brachytherapy system
  • Two Varian Linear Accelerators
  • A Perfexiona Gamma Knife

Our equipment allows us to offer patients a variety of treatment options.

Infusion Therapy

Infusion therapy includes chemotherapy and blood transfusions. It's also used to help with side effects of cancer treatment and can include hydration and other therapies.

Our Infusion Center includes different treatment areas, including private and group rooms. Download a guide (PDF) to the Infusion Center.

Additionally, patients at UVA Cancer Center Community Clinics can get access to chemotherapy close to Augusta, Charlottesville and Culpeper.

Targeted Drug Therapy

Used to identify and attack specific cancer cells without damaging nearby healthy tissue, this non-chemotherapy approach targets specific cancer cell characteristics unique to your genetic makeup. It can be given alone or combined with other treatment methods.

Surgery

Surgery for cancer includes removing tumors and cancerous tissue. At UVA, we specialize in state-of-the-art minimally-invasive thoracic surgery that includes procedures like VATS Lobectomy.

Radiation Therapy

Radiation therapy includes the latest advances like TomoTherapy, brachytherapy, the TrueBeam™ Linear Accelerator and Interoperative Radiation Therapy (IORT). Learn more about radiation therapy and download a support guide (PDF) to help you through treatments.

Gamma Knife Radiosurgery

This procedure uses focused radiation to target brain and pituitary tumors and other conditions. This treatment process does not involve a knife or scalpel. Find out more about Gamma Knife.

Bone Marrow & Stem Cell Transplants

For patients with high-risk and life-threatening blood diseases like leukemia and lymphoma, we perform bone marrow and stem cell transplants through our Stem Cell Transplant Clinic. The clinic is newly accepted to the National Marrow Donor Program Be the Match registry.

Focused Ultrasound

MRI-guided focused ultrasound surgery concentrates beams of ultrasound energy to a single spot in the body. These focused beams cause heating and destruction of the targeted area without damaging surrounding tissue. Learn how focused ultrasound works.

Announcements

For meeting national quality and patient safety standards, we have been awarded a three-year accreditation in radiation oncology by the American College of Radiology (ACR).

Infusion Patient Tour

As a new patient at the Infusion Center, you’ll get a 90-minute orientation and tour to help explain your treatment process and ease your anxiety. Download a guide (PDF) to the Infusion Center.
