Treating Kids With Cancer

While medical advances in cancer treatments have dramatically reduced the mortality rate from childhood cancers, the disease continues to be a leading cause of death among children and teens.

At UVA, we offer the latest treatment options for cancer, providing care that is targeted to the special needs of children and teens. Because children with cancer often develop other medical problems, our pediatric cancer specialists work closely with doctors and surgeons in other specialties to provide comprehensive care for your child.
