Prostate Cancer Care at UVA Health
For expert, compassionate prostate cancer care, you can count on UVA Health. As a National Cancer Institute Comprehensive Cancer Center, we're a leader in cancer research, diagnosis, treatment, and prevention. We're the only such center in Virginia — and one of just 52 in the country.
Our team is prepared for the moment you need us most. Our doctors and scientists are innovators in cancer care who define new treatments and push the boundaries of research. They'll work hand in hand to develop a personalized care plan that gives you the best possible outcome.
With prostate cancer, "watchful waiting" sometimes makes the most sense. In other cases, we turn to the very latest tools and methods — some of which aren't available at many hospitals. For instance, we're skilled in Brachytherapy Plus, the most precise form of high-dose radiation therapy. Only a few hospitals in the United States offer this treatment.
We can also use advanced surgical approaches to remove the prostate. One example is robotic prostatectomy, which avoids damage to nearby nerves and muscles to preserve function.
Being diagnosed with prostate cancer can be overwhelming. But rest assured that UVA Health is here for you in this moment.
