Comprehensive treatment plans

Moffitt offers some of the latest advancements in sarcoma treatment. Based on the size, stage and location of a patient’s tumor, his or her treatment plan may consist of a combination of chemotherapy, radiation therapy, immunotherapy, molecular targeted therapeutics or surgery. Our sarcoma specialists continuously monitor patients as they undergo treatment and can make any necessary adjustments to the treatment plan as a patient progresses. Additionally, through our robust clinical trials program, eligible patients have the opportunity to benefit from groundbreaking new therapies before they are made widely available.
