Soft Tissue Sarcoma

Our sarcoma experts at the UofL Brown Cancer Center customize your care to deliver the most successful treatment, while focusing on your quality of life. Our expertise and experience can make a difference in your outcome.

Diagnosis of sarcomas can be challenging, but accurate diagnosis is essential to successful treatment. Since sarcomas are complex and can develop in many places in the body, they can be difficult to diagnose.  Our specialized surgeons and pathologists use the latest, most sophisticated tests to pinpoint the type and extent of the cancer.

Using a team approach that brings together specialists from many areas, we offer everything you need for diagnosis and treatment in one location. Our treatments draw upon the latest technology to save limbs, as well as function and appearance. Your sarcoma treatment is customized specifically for you by the region’s foremost teams of experts.

Because sarcoma is rare, most oncologists treat few if any patients in their careers. Statistics show that sarcoma patients have better outcomes when they are treated at comprehensive cancer centers like the Brown Cancer Center where specialized oncologists have more experience with the disease.

Like all surgeries, sarcoma surgery is most successful when performed by a specialist with a great deal of experience in the procedure. Our recognized surgeons specialize in sarcoma treatment, using the least-invasive and most advanced techniques.

At UofL Brown Cancer Center, we are committed to providing you with the most advanced treatments for sarcoma with the least impact on your body. We offer the most up-to-date and advanced chemotherapy options, and new radiation therapy techniques allow our doctors to target tumors more precisely, delivering the maximum amount of radiation with the least damage to healthy cells.

We also participate in clinical trials.
