Overview

Overview

Cleveland Clinic’s Sarcoma Program is a national and international resource for the diagnosis and treatment of adults and children with benign and malignant tumors of the bone and soft tissue.

The multidisciplinary sarcoma clinic is designed to provide you with the medical opinions of sarcoma specialists from different disciplines in a single location.  Sarcoma surgeons, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, radiologists and pathologists come together to review patients with malignant and benign bone and soft tissue tumors. These sarcoma specialists are experienced in the care of complex, challenging tumors. Together, they will come up with the treatment plan most likely to result in the best possible outcome and quality of life.  Our team of pediatric solid tumor specialists also work together to treat children, adolescents, and young adults with rare and common varieties of cancer that occur in young people.

People who develop cancer of the bone or surrounding soft tissue can take comfort in Cleveland Clinic's expertise with musculoskeletal cancers. Although bone tumors are relatively rare, our specialists treat hundreds of people with benign and malignant tumors each year in one of the largest programs in the United States.

In the past, bone cancer often led to amputation. Today, our bone cancer specialists have reversed that trend with limb-sparing surgery at Cleveland Clinic. More than 90 percent of our patients with bone cancer can avoid amputation with only a small chance of recurrence.

Cleveland Clinic is ranked as one of the nation’s top hospitals by U.S. News & World Report.
