Sarcomas have more than 70 different subtypes, each of which requires specialized care. Synovial Sarcoma is a rare and complex type of sarcoma that typically occurs in teenagers and young adults. Our team of oncologists and therapists who work with children are here to provide you with comprehensive treatment and quality care.

Overview

We will base treatment primarily on the specific type, location and stage of the cancer and your overall health. We may recommend removing the cancer followed by reconstructive procedures, in some cases. We also may use radiation and chemotherapy before surgery to reduce the tumor’s size or after surgery to destroy remaining cancer cells. Chemotherapy is often a critical step to reduce the chance of recurrence.
