Glioblastoma Care at UVA Health

Being diagnosed with a glioblastoma (GBM) can be overwhelming. But rest assured that UVA Health is here for you in this moment.

While there's no cure for GBM, we're passionate about helping you live longer and maintain your quality of life. Our team is skilled in the latest tools and technologies for detecting and treating GBM. For example, we can use a specialized type of genetic testing to figure out what kind of treatment will work best on your specific tumor.

Our doctors and scientists are leaders in cancer care who define new treatments and push the boundaries of research. And our surgeons are recognized nationwide for their expertise in tumor removal. Our entire team will work hand in hand to develop a personalized treatment plan just for you.

If you have a complex case, it will be reviewed by our weekly tumor board. This is a meeting of experts from across all cancer specialties at UVA Health. They'll look at your case from every angle and recommend the approach that will give you the best possible outcome.

Finally, UVA Health is a National Cancer Institute Comprehensive Cancer Center. This title means 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.

For expert, compassionate GBM care, you can count on UVA Health. We're prepared for the moment you need us most.
