Our surgical oncologists manage the diagnosis and treatment of soft tissue sarcomas using a multidisciplinary approach. Both our medical oncologists and surgical oncologists have a special interest in the management of sarcomas. Our orthopaedic oncologists manage bone sarcomas.
Surgical Treatment for Sarcomas
Surgery is a cornerstone of sarcoma treatment. Your doctor will decide on the best surgical approach based on the following factors:
- Tumor size
- Degree of differentiation (what the tumor looks like under the microscope)
- Where the tumor occurs in the body
Our surgical oncologists have special training and experience in managing and treatment sarcoma. We also manage and treat recurrent disease.
Clinical Trials for Sarcomas
At the Comprehensive Cancer Center, we are heavily involved in clinical research and currently have more than 14 open clinical trials to investigate new methods for treating sarcoma. We strive to make cutting-edge trials available to all of our patients, and insist that participation is always the patient’s choice. Learn more about cancer clinical trials at Wake Forest.
