Multidisciplinary Sarcoma Clinic
The Multidisciplinary Sarcoma Clinic
offers a collaborative approach in treating soft tissue and bone sarcomas.
The physicians who staff the Sarcoma Clinic offer a comprehensive range of expertise with specialty training in medical oncology,
orthopedic oncology, surgical oncology, radiation oncology, tumor imaging and pathology of bone and soft tissue sarcomas. They also
interface with physicians in otolaryngology, neurosurgery, thoracic surgery, cardiovascular surgery and urology for the optimal treatment
of patients with sarcoma.
After each new patient is seen, the case is presented at the Tumor Board, which involves the collaborative effort of multiple medical
specialties and allows expert opinion and recommendations based on the most recent research findings. Once your physicians know the type
of sarcoma, the location of the primary tumor and if there are any metastatic tumors in the body, all the physicians who are involved in
the discussion of your case can come up with a plan for treatment, which may include surgery, radiation, chemotherapy, or a combination
of some or all of these treatments.
Children diagnosed with sarcoma receive treatment in the Orthopaedic Oncology Center. For more information, please contact 800-865-1125.
