What to Expect

What to Expect in the Sarcoma Program

Patients with sarcoma often require a combination of surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation therapy.

Members of our inter-professional team are recognized leaders in their fields in the diagnosis and treatment of sarcoma, with access to cutting-edge technologies, novel therapies, advanced surgical and reconstructive techniques for bone and soft tissue sarcomas and clinical trials.

Your treatment team of medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, pathologists and surgical oncologists work together with nurses, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, social workers, dietitians and other allied health professionals to develop a plan of care that is personalized to provide the best patient-centered care to every patient.

Physical, psychosocial, spiritual and cultural needs will be addressed throughout a patient’s journey from screening, diagnosis and treatment to follow-up, survivorship and end-of-life phases of care. We help our patients navigate support services such as financial help and spiritual support, as well as resources for families, adolescents and young adults.

Sarcoma Research

The sarcoma program at Mount Sinai Hospital is dedicated to clinical and translational research to identify and develop advanced treatment strategies for soft tissue sarcomas and bone malignancies, to reduce recurrence rates and improve outcomes for patients.

Multidisciplinary Cancer Conference (Tumour Boards) Surgeons (orthopaedic, general, thoracic and other specialties as required), radiologists, pathologists, medical oncologists and radiation oncologists meet weekly for tumour rounds to discuss pathology and treatment planning for current and newly referred patients to the program.
