Expert Team

The expert team members at the Cedars-Sinai Sarcoma Program at the Samuel Oschin Comprehensive Cancer Institute have extensive experience treating patients with sarcoma.

This means that patients with sarcomas have access to experienced specialists who can make prompt, accurate diagnoses and provide appropriate testing and surgery. New patient appointments are scheduled within one week of your initial telephone call.

Many of these experts focus exclusively on sarcoma and other benign tumors of the bone and soft tissue. They offer the latest techniques in radiation, chemotherapy and surgery, personalized for each patient's situation.
