Patient Care



A sarcoma is a type of malignancy that arises from abnormal cells arising from mesenchymal origin, including malignant bone, cartilage, fat, muscle, vascular, or other connective tissues. Sarcomas are quite rare in comparison to other common malignancies, such as breast, colon, and lung cancer that are almost always carcinoma. At OSU, we have extensive experience treating both adult and pediatric sarcomas, including soft tissue sarcoma, osteosarcoma, chondrosarcoma, Ewing’s sarcoma, Rhabdomyosarcoma.

Sarcoma is an uncommon cancer and treating patients optimally requires intimate collaboration between surgeons, medical oncologists (or pediatric oncologist), radiation oncologists, pathologists, and radiologists. The James has a dedicated team of specialists so that we can provide the best care possible for each individual patient.
