The sarcoma program in Toronto is the largest multi-disciplinary program of its type in Canada. It is unique because patients are able to not only receive all of their cancer care needs, but also all of their complementary medical, rehabilitation and psycho-social needs all at the associated hospitals. Our goal is to offer high quality multidisciplinary treatment to patients with musculoskeletal tumors. This includes patients with soft tissue and bone sarcoma, benign aggressive bone and soft tissue tumors, difficult reconstructive problems related to metastatic disease, along with other tumor-related problems.
The sarcoma team treats patients from diagnosis, staging, to treatment, to cure or palliative care when required. The scope of services also includes close follow-up in out-patient inter-disciplinary clinics such as:
- Bone tumour clinic at Mount Sinai Hospital with surgical and medical oncology
- Soft tissue sarcoma clinic at Princess Margaret Hospital with surgical, radiation and medical oncology
- Bone and soft tissue tumor clinic at London Regional Cancer Clinic with surgical, radiation and medical oncology
- For patients who are unable to attend one of these follow-up clinics, we arrange for appropriate medical assessments in their communities.
