Sarcoma is a rare form of cancer, so it is natural to have many questions after receiving it as a diagnosis. At Fox Chase Cancer Center, we have provided a comprehensive approach to cancer diagnosis, treatment and support for more than 100 years, and we are one of the few cancer centers in the nation offering a multidisciplinary approach to researching and treating sarcoma.
Our sarcoma specialists provide expert guidance, so you can make informed decisions about your care and what is best for you and your family. We draw upon the nationally renowned experience of our multidisciplinary medical team to tailor a treatment plan that is unique to you. The sarcoma physician team regularly reviews new or challenging cases in depth to reach consensus on treatment options and strategies, and through this coordinated approach, provides thorough and personalized care to our patients (as well as access to innovative therapies and clinical trials).
At Fox Chase, we take enormous pride in providing world-class care for our patients with sarcoma. Your dedicated team not only includes physicians, surgeons, researchers and nurses, but also nurse navigators, social workers and other specialized staff to provide emotional support and coping strategies.
“Our patients want to be empowered and play a major role in getting better. We act as their partners and build upon their energy and enthusiasm to be a crucial part of their own care and treatment.”
— Krisha Howell, MD, Radiation Oncologist and Sarcoma Specialist
“The Fox Chase experience is just phenomenal. We are a sarcoma center of excellence with world experts working as a team to treat these types of rare tumors. Fox Chase is the first place that sarcoma patients should come for consultation and care.”
