Sarcoma treatment depends on the type, stage, and grade of your cancer.
A precise diagnosis of the stage, grade, and subtype of sarcoma is crucial to designing a treatment plan. Our pathology experts use the latest diagnostic imaging tools to assess your tumor.
You may also need a biopsy for more detailed insight about your disease. We do most biopsies with minimally invasive techniques in your doctor's office.
Most types of cancer respond better to a blend of treatments such as surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation.
Many sarcomas need surgery to remove as much of the tumor as possible.
Chemo and radiation help shrink the tumor before surgery or help prevent it from spreading after surgery.
The goal of any treatment is to remove the cancer and take every measure to lessen the chances that it will return.
