Adult Soft Tissue Sarcoma Treatment (PDQ®): Treatment - Patient Information [NCI]
Sarcoma is a term for bone cancer or tumors of the soft or connective tissue
Patient Care and Treatment
The U-M Comprehensive Cancer Center offers a Multidisciplinary Sarcoma Clinic (adult), emphasizing our commitment to a team-based approach to care. What this means to our patients is their case will be reviewed by physicians with specialty training in medical oncology, orthopedic oncology, surgical oncology, radiation oncology, tumor imaging and pathology of bone and soft tissue sarcomas.
The Connective Tissue (Sarcoma) Program receives about 250 new cases annually. This volume allows our team to develop well-rounded experience in treating these diseases, which is an advantage considering most community-based practices see fewer than 10 cases a year.
Research and innovation
We offer trials exclusive to our cancer center, as well as those sponsored by the National Cancer Institute. Our program is a founding member of the Sarcoma Alliance for Research through Collaboration, a clinical trials group that is dedicated to advances in sarcoma treatment through research.
Our patients have access to the U-M Comprehensive Cancer Center's Patient Support Services. To fully understand what this means, please take time to visit the support services area of this website. We outline the programs available to our patients at every point in their care.
