Sarcoma Surveillance Clinic
At Fred Hutchinson Cancer Center, we understand that surveillance and supportive care is equally important as cancer treatment for our patients. Our Sarcoma Surveillance Clinic offers monitoring for patients who have completed their sarcoma treatment. This includes routine follow-up exams and scan review, which is important in order to detect possible early signs or sarcoma recurrence or metastatic disease.
Who is the clinic for?
The Fred Hutch Sarcoma Surveillance Clinic is designed for patients who have completed treatment for sarcoma. The frequency of your visits will depend on your surveillance plan.
The Sarcoma Surveillance Clinic is available to Fred Hutch sarcoma patients who are transitioning to surveillance.
Patients wanting to transfer their care would first be scheduled at our Sarcoma Clinic and then subsequently referred to the Sarcoma Surveillance Clinic.
What to expect
The Sarcoma Surveillance clinic is tailored to meet individual patients’ needs and offers the following services:
- Surveillance planning
- Routine imaging and clinic follow-up
- Management of long-term side effects of cancer treatment
- Referrals to specialists or supportive care services, as needed
Supportive care services include integrative medicine, which includes acupuncture, as well as many other services such as psychiatry and nutrition.
