The Sarcoma Program at the Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center in Baltimore provides comprehensive care for pediatric and adult patients with bone and soft tissue sarcomas. Our multidisciplinary program experts, including radiation, medical and surgical oncologists, neurosurgeons, radiologists and other musculoskeletal clinicians meet weekly to review cases, study patients’ images and come up with a detailed, coordinated treatment plan tailored for each person.
Because sarcomas are rare, it is important to be diagnosed and treated by physicians who have extensive experience in managing these tumors. Our sarcoma team members are always looking for improved methods to treat these tumors while maximizing our patients’ quality of life, whether employing new radiologic techniques for diagnosis or through participation in clinical trials for new medications or new drug regimens.
Treatment of Soft Tissue and Bone Sarcomas
Johns Hopkins surgeons Nita Ahuja and Carol Morris discuss the management of sarcomas. There are about 12,000 cases of sarcoma per year in U.S. and these cancers can affect both children and adults. Because of their rarity, it is important that patients and their families have access to specialized teams with experience in these cancers, such as Johns Hopkins.
