Survivorship

Sarcoma Surveillance Clinic

At Seattle Cancer Care Alliance (SCCA), 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 SCCA Sarcoma Surveillance Clinic is designed for patients who have completed treatment for sarcoma. The frequency of your visits will depend on your surveillance plan.

If you are a current SCCA patient

The Sarcoma Surveillance Clinic is available to SCCA sarcoma patients who are transitioning to surveillance.

If you are not a current SCCA patient

Patients wanting to transfer their care would first be scheduled at our Sarcoma Clinic and then subsequently referred to the Sarcoma Surveillance Clinic.

“Seeing patients in the Surveillance Clinic is exciting because it represents that they have graduated from the active treatment phase and higher-risk period of follow up. The emphasis is geared toward getting back to life and health after cancer. ”
— Jennifer S. Hamilton, PA-C
