Surgery for Seattle Cancer Care Alliance adult sarcoma patients is performed at University of Washington Medical Center (UWMC) by surgeons who provide care at both SCCA and UWMC. Our surgeons perform more surgeries on adults with sarcoma than surgeons at any other cancer center in the Northwest.
The exact surgery that you need will depend on many factors, including the location and size of your tumor. Your team will explain the details of your procedure, the benefits and risks, how to prepare before surgery, and what to expect during your recovery and beyond.
In some situations, a sarcoma may be too large or aggressive to remove through surgery. In such cases, a multidisciplinary team can identify a course of treatment to control the sarcoma that does not involve surgery.
