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 program is designed to provide you with the medical opinions of specialists from different disciplines in a single location. The surgeons, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, radiologists and pathologists come together to review patients with malignant and benign bone and soft tissue tumors. These physicians 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.

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, that trend has been reversed 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’s orthopaedic program is ranked No. 3 in the nation and top-ranked in Ohio by U.S. News & World Report. Cleveland Clinic’s cancer program is No. 7 in the nation and top-ranked in Ohio according to the same survey.
