Harold C. Simmons Comprehensive Cancer Center
Cancer Care at the Highest Level. Anywhere.
Advanced, Comprehensive Care for Sarcoma Patients
Sarcomas are cancers that originate in the body’s bones and soft tissues, such as muscle, fat, nerves, tendons, blood vessels, and the tissue around joints.
Soft-tissue sarcomas can arise anywhere in the body, but they often develop on the arms, legs, chest, or abdomen. Bone sarcomas (“bone cancers”) usually develop in the legs, upper arms, and ribs.
Sarcomas are relatively rare. Each year in the U.S., fewer than 15,000 people are diagnosed with soft-tissue sarcomas, and approximately 3,000 are diagnosed with bone sarcomas.
Patients at UT Southwestern Medical Center benefit from our multidisciplinary team of physicians who specialize in diagnosing and treating patients with all types of sarcomas.
Our sarcoma specialists are part of the Harold C. Simmons Comprehensive Cancer Center, the only National Cancer Institute-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center in North Texas. They bring focused expertise and integrated, patient-centered care to this diverse group of cancers, offering the most current evidence-based diagnostic techniques and treatments.
Our team partners with Children’s Health in Dallas to treat pediatric sarcoma patients.
We also offer patients and families a range of cancer-related support services.
