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 in North Carolina 

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.
