Ovarian Cancer Care at UVA Health

For expert, compassionate ovarian 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 leaders in cancer care who define new treatments and push the boundaries of research. They'll work hand in hand to develop a personalized treatment plan that gives you the best possible outcome.

Many patients benefit from our highly specialized clinical programs. One of these is designed especially for patients at high risk for breast or ovarian cancer. Through services like screening and genetic counseling/testing, we can help you lower your cancer risk. And if we do find cancer, we can treat it sooner.

At UVA Health, you'll also have access to clinical trials and a wide range of treatments. For instance, our team can give chemotherapy via a thin tube inserted into your belly. This is known as intraperitoneal (IP) chemotherapy. Compared with intravenous (IV) treatment, IP chemotherapy allows for a much higher concentration of the drugs to attack the cancer cells.

Being diagnosed with ovarian cancer can be overwhelming. But rest assured that UVA Health is here for you in this moment.
