Breast Cancer Treatment

Make an Appointment

If you have a breast cancer diagnosis, we offer a host of support services and cutting-edge treatments tailored to your situation, condition and needs. We offer more collective expertise and a greater depth of knowledge in diagnosing and treating breast cancer than other regional breast cancer programs. That's just one reason why we have earned full accreditation from the American College of Surgeons’ National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers (NAPBC).

Breast Surgery Options at UVA

Our breast care program is led by board-certified breast and plastic surgeons who specialize in both surgery and reconstruction for our breast cancer patients, including:

Chemotherapy or Hormonal Treatment 

Our board-certified breast oncologists specialize in the medical treatment of breast cancers. We offer the full complement of both standard medical treatment and clinical trials.

Radiation Treatment

Radiation therapy, using some of the most advanced radiation technology available anywhere and innovative clinical trials that sometimes allow faster breast radiation.

Beyond Treatment
iort clinical trial

Precision Breast IORT combines image-guided, high-dose targeted radiation with surgery, changing what would normally be multiple appointments for radiation and surgery into a single procedure.
