Today there’s more hope than ever before for our patients.
Advancing your cancer care through a personalized, integrative, 360º multidisciplinary team approach. Improving cancer outcomes. Providing superior value.
Today, millions of people are living with cancer or have had cancer, including yourself or people that you care about. Virginia Cancer Specialists offers disease and drug information with the intent of helping you learn more about what you can expect for “typical treatment” of common types of cancer. Use this information to help you better understand the disease that you or your loved one is faced with. Then talk with your physician about how a customized treatment plan will be developed for your specific needs.
The physicians and staff in The US Oncology Network are helping to advance cancer care in community practices like VCS with novel cutting-edge therapies.
Because Virginia Cancer Specialists is committed to providing the best available care to all of its patients, research is and will continue to be the cornerstone of the organization. Such research offers patients access to new investigational drugs not always available to the general public. VCS houses the Largest Clinical Trial Phase 1 /Oncology Research space in the NoVa area.
Our community based physicians treat all cancer types, with subspecialists in areas such as Breast, GI, Lung, Genitourinary, Sarcoma, and Hematologic Malignancies, to name a few.
