Sarcoma Treatment Program
Mercy Hospital is one of the few hospitals in Florida that offers innovative, advanced orthopedic oncology services for sarcomas. A sarcoma is a malignancy, or cancer, of connective or supportive tissue in the body. A sarcoma can develop in bone, muscle, ligaments, tendons, nerves, fatty tissue or other locations. Fellowship-trained orthopedic oncologists experienced in treating bone and soft tissue tumors are conveniently located on campus. Our surgeons use cutting-edge techniques and treatments to effectively treat tumors, with an emphasis on limb sparing surgery. The clinicians at Mercy Hospital take a comprehensive, team-based approach to cancer care. We place the patient at the center of care and create an individualized plan that promotes healing.
Coordinating care for a loved with one cancer can be difficult. The sarcoma program has a Nurse Navigator dedicated to helping sarcoma patients and their families have a seamless treatment experience. A Nurse Navigator supports patients:
- At the time of diagnosis
- With appointment scheduling between specialists
- In preparation for and after surgery
- With follow-up appointments and survivorship
