A full spectrum of sarcoma treatment options is available to patients from West Palm Beach, Florida, at Moffitt Cancer Center in Tampa. Standing at the forefront of cancer treatment and clinical research, Moffitt features a Sarcoma Program that is led by medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, pathologists, limb preservation specialists, radiologists and other experts who focus exclusively on bone cancers. Moffitt also ranks among the largest cancer centers in the nation based on patient volume, which means that our physicians possess an extensive level of experience in addressing even the most complex and uncommon sarcomas – experience that can make all the difference when it comes to achieving the best possible outcome and quality of life.
Individualized sarcoma treatment options
Sarcoma can take dozens of forms, each with its own symptoms and recommended treatments. For this reason, it’s imperative to choose a cancer center that emphasizes individualized treatment. As a Moffitt patient, you can rest assured that our tumor board will collaborate to develop a sarcoma treatment plan that is fine-tuned to the specifics of your diagnosis. Depending on your overall health, the type and extent of your sarcoma and several other factors, your sarcoma treatment plan may include a combination of:
- Surgery, such as a procedure facilitated by a leading-edge navigational system for musculoskeletal tumor removal and limb preservation
- Chemotherapy and radiation therapy to destroy cancerous cells in and around your primary tumor and throughout your body
- Clinical trials through our robust program, which allows our patients to benefit from the latest breakthroughs in sarcoma treatment before those options are made widely available
At Moffitt, we understand that traveling to our cancer center from West Palm Beach may present some logistical hurdles. To help make our world-class treatments more accessible to individuals throughout the country, we’ve teamed up with several local hotels to offer discounted rates to our out-of-town patients and their families.
