Sarcoma Specialists

The following is a list of some of the medical centers and hospitals specializing in sarcoma. While the list is not comprehensive, it includes the leaders in sarcoma research and treatment. Because sarcomas are rare, it is important to find physicians who have experience with this disease. We hope the following list makes finding a specialist easier.

These are the criteria we use for inclusion of sarcoma centers on this list:

  • A sarcoma medical group consisting of all specialties, including surgical, orthopedic and medical oncologists; radiologists; pathologists; and oncology nursing as well as rehabilitation services.
  • At least one group member who belongs to a sarcoma-oriented medical organization, such as the Connective Tissue Oncology Society (CTOS).
  • Publications concerning sarcoma in peer-reviewed journals.
  • Sarcoma conferences (e.g. Tumor Board), where sarcoma group members meet at least once per month to discuss patient care issues.
  • At least 100 sarcoma patients seen per year.
  • MRI imaging available; PET scans desired.
  • Patient enrollment in clinical trials.
  • Strong support personnel such as social workers, psychologists and psychiatrists.
  • Sarcoma support group desired.

We will also list individual physicians who do not practice at a sarcoma center if they meet all of the following criteria:

  • Member of a sarcoma society (ie CTOS, MSTS)
  • Sees/treats >20 sarcoma patients/year
  • Involved in sarcoma research (directly or indirectly, preclinical or clinical)
  • Has access (or frequent contact) with other sarcoma experts/sarcoma centers to ensure a multidiscplinary approach
