About the Sarcoma Program Team

The Importance of Multidisciplinary Care

Because the type of treatments recommended depends upon the nature of the sarcoma and its stage of progression, careful review of the tissue removed during a surgical biopsy is essential. A pathologist experienced in diagnosing sarcomas as well as radiologists, oncologists, and surgeons who primarily treat sarcomas should review the biopsied tissue.

Due to the complex nature of these kinds of cancers, complete diagnosis and treatment, planning by a multi-disciplinary team of expert cancer specialists is essential to determine the best treatment options for you.
