Sarcomas are cancers found in bones, blood vessels, cartilage, fat and muscle. They
are broken down into two groups: bone tumors and soft tissue sarcomas.
If the sarcoma has not spread to other areas in the body, the treatment plan may
involve surgery, radiation and chemotherapy. If the sarcoma is advanced, the primary
goal of the treatment plan is to offer the patient the best possible quality of
life. This may require the use of individual or combined treatment methods.
Physicians in the surgical oncology division help diagnose, treat and manage various
sarcomas of the soft tissue and bones as part of the multidisciplinary team of radiologists,
pathologists, orthopaedic surgeons, radiation oncologists and medical oncologists
in the UF Health Jacksonville Cancer Center.
