Diagnosis & treatment

Diagnosing Soft Tissue Sarcoma

Roper St. Francis Cancer Care uses the latest technology in the diagnosis and treatment of sarcomas. In addition, we provide widespread access to specialists, treatment options, clinical trials and support services.


Sarcoma treatment at Roper St. Francis

From initial evaluation to treatment and recovery, our oncologists, radiologists, surgeons, radiation oncologists and rehabilitation specialists work collaboratively to provide coordinated care and the most tailored treatment plan for your diagnosis.

Sarcoma treatment options include:

  • Surgery – removes cancer, yet maintains healthy tissue and vital functions of a limb or an organ
  • Radiation – shrinks tumor before surgery and reduces risk of recurrence after surgery
  • Chemotherapy – shrinks or kills cancer with powerful medications that may be given in pill form or through an IV tube
  • Immunotherapy

Clinical trials

In addition to state-of-the-art treatment options, our patients have access to a wide range of current clinical trials.
