The Sarcoma Clinical Program provides compassionate, multidisciplinary care that is informed by research to develop the most effective therapies for sarcomas including GIST tumors. Sarcomas are rare, and can be difficult to diagnose. That is why it’s important to go to cancer center that specializes in all the different types of sarcomas. Conditions treated by the Sarcoma Program include bone sarcoma, Ewing Sarcoma, osteosarcoma, rhabdomyosarcoma and soft tissue sarcomas. The Sarcoma Program at the Abramson Cancer Center has one of the few teams in the world dedicated to bone and soft tissue sarcomas. Our internationally recognized specialty physicians are leaders in the field.
Penn’s Sarcoma Program has a comprehensive team sub-specialist medical oncologists, orthopedic surgeons, radiation oncologists, pathologists, radiologists, and nurse practitioners. This group meets weekly to discuss treatment plans for patients, resulting in advanced and personalized treatment plans for each patient.
Penn physicians also conduct clinical research and other investigations to improve the ability to diagnose and treat patients with all types of sarcomas. It is through such research that clinicians improve current modalities and develop innovative treatments for sarcoma.
