Seattle Cancer Care Alliance (SCCA) and UW Medicine provide experienced, multidisciplinary care and comprehensive treatment for people with sarcoma. Every year we treat more sarcoma patients than any other cancer center in the region. The majority of our patients come from outside Western Washington, and many travel long distances to receive care here.
True Team Care
Sarcoma is a rare form of cancer that is often hard to diagnose and treat. For this reason it’s critical that sarcoma patients are treated at a multidisciplinary cancer center where a team of sarcoma experts collaborates to determine the best treatment approach. Ours is the only true multidisciplinary sarcoma team in the Northwest—with medical oncologists, surgeons, radiation oncologists, pathologists, and others who have a deep understanding of the disease and its treatment.
New Treatments in Clinical Studies
SCCA was formed, in part, to bring promising new treatments to patients faster. For people with sarcoma, this means more treatment options through SCCA than you might find elsewhere, including the chance to participate in clinical studies conducted at SCCA and its founding organizations, Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center and UW Medicine.
