Sarcoma

The world-renowned experts at the OSUCCC – James are transforming the way sarcomas are prevented, detected, treated and cured. 

Today, cancer is no longer solely defined by location or even by stage. We know there is no routine cancer, and there is no routine sarcoma. 

Sarcomas are complex diseases. Each patient’s disease is different, behaving differently in the bodies they’re in and calling for a tailored, individualized treatment plan for each patient.

To deliver the most effective sarcoma detection and treatment, our nationally renowned experts identify and understand cancer at the biologic and genetic levels, unlocking the molecular code of a patient’s disease and pinpointing what makes each cancer grow — then discovering what stops it.

Our team of sarcoma subspecialists spans a broad range of disciplines: from medical, surgical and radiation oncologists to orthopaedic and reconstructive surgeons, molecular and biological pathologists, genetic scientists and more — all specializing in sarcoma (and only sarcoma) research, prevention, detection, treatment and cure.  

It’s that subspecialization and singular focus that enable us to discover, develop and deliver the most targeted therapies for each individual sarcoma patient.  

And that means our collective expertise leads to improved outcomes, faster responses, fewer side effects and more hope for cancer patients everywhere.

Kaposi Sarcoma

Kaposi’s sarcoma is a rare type of soft tissue sarcoma. Sarcomas are cancers that affect the soft tissues of the body. Kaposi’s sarcoma primarily affects blood vessels. At the OSUCCC – James, our Kaposi’s sarcoma specialists are world-renowned cancer experts who focus solely on Kaposi’s sarcoma and who reach across medical disciplines to design the very best treatment plan and therapies to target each patient’s specific cancer.

Soft Tissue Sarcoma

Soft tissue sarcoma can form in any of the body’s tissues, including the lymph vessels, the thin tubes that connect lymph nodes. In adults, most soft tissue sarcomas form in the arms, legs, head, neck, trunk and abdomen. More than 12,000 new cases of soft tissue sarcoma are diagnosed in the United States each year. At the OSUCCC – James, cancer research experts focus on studying soft tissue sarcoma prevention, diagnosis, treatment and cure.

Bone & Spine Sarcoma

Spine and bone sarcoma commonly forms in the ends of the long bones of the body, which include bones of the arms and legs. The OSUCCC – James is a world leader in spine & bone sarcoma treatment, developing some of the very latest advancements that targeting sarcoma genes. In fact, our spine & sarcoma subspecialists actually help write national clinical guidelines for treating specific spine & bone sarcomas.

Uterine Sarcoma

Uterine sarcoma is a rare type of uterine cancer that forms in muscle or other tissues of the uterus (the small, hollow, pear-shaped organ in a woman's pelvis in which a fetus develops). It usually occurs after menopause. The two main types of uterine sarcoma are leiomyosarcoma (cancer that begins in smooth muscle cells) and endometrial stromal sarcoma (cancer that begins in connective tissue cells). There is no routine uterine sarcoma, nor is there ever a routine way to treat it and so the OSUCCC – James team of subspecialists determine the best treatment for each patient based on his or her specific, individual cancer.
