Sarcomas (Bone & Soft Tissue)

Pediatric and adult sarcoma patients at Johns Hopkins are treated by a team of sarcoma experts that include medical and radiation oncologists, orthopedics and plastic surgeons.  Through the Johns Hopkins Sarcoma Center, patients also have access to the latest clinical trials and treatments integrated into a comprehensive care plan.

Sarcoma Experts

Johns Hopkins sarcoma experts use the latest technology, surgical techniques and clinical trials to treat sarcomas in patients of all ages.  Our multidisciplinary team meets weekly to review and coordinate care for all sarcoma patients. 
 

About Sarcomas

Sarcomas are a rare type of malignant tumor that can be divided into two groups: bone sarcomas and soft tissue sarcomas. Each year, approximately 8,900 new cases of bone and soft tissue sarcomas are diagnosed. Of the approximate 8,900 new cases, 650-700 children and adolescents younger than 20 years of age are diagnosed with bone sarcomas and 850-900 with soft tissue sarcomas.
