Sarcoma

UCLA Advantages

The UCLA Sarcoma Program provides innovative multidisciplinary treatment for adults and children with sarcoma at any stage of the disease.

UCLA is one of the three busiest sarcoma centers in the nation. We evaluate over 800 patients with sarcoma on an annual basis, 500 of which undergo surgery at UCLA.

We hold a weekly multidisciplinary sarcoma conference at UCLA, attended by specialists in sarcoma from a wide variety of practices (including radiation oncology,  surgical oncology, orthopedic oncology, medical oncology, pediatric oncology, pathology and radiology). The goal of these conferences is to formulate and coordinate optimal treatment strategies for individual patients.

Sarcoma Treatment Options

Radiation therapy can be used to treat sarcoma at any stage of the disease, and your treatment plan will be customized accordingly. The technologies we currently offer for treatment of sarcoma include:

Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT)
Image Guided Radiation Therapy (IGRT)
High Dose Rate (HDR) Brachytherapy
Stereotactic Body Radiation Therapy (SBRT)
MRI-based radiation planning
