New York-Presbyterian/Columbia University Medical Center is home to the strongest multidisciplinary Sarcoma Center on the East Coast. The Center’s comprehensive clinical and research program is supported by faculty members and staff from the Division of Hematology/Oncology and Departments of Surgery and Radiation Oncology.
Sarcomas include a broad range of tissue abnormalities (neoplasms) that account for approximately 100 different types of distinct cancers. Some types are so rare that only handfuls are diagnosed each year in the United States. Specialized care by experts focused exclusively on sarcoma treatment is essential – as each sarcoma type is treated differently.
