Adult Sarcoma

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. On an annual basis we evaluate over 800 patients with sarcoma, 500 of which undergo surgery at UCLA.

At our weekly sarcoma conference physicians specializing in sarcoma from surgical oncology, orthopedic oncology, medical oncology, radiation oncology, pediatric oncology, pathology and radiology formulate and coordinate optimal treatment strategies for individual patients.

To make an appointment, refer a patient or learn more about our comprehensive sarcoma care services, contact the Information and Referral line at (310) 825-7086.

Pediatric Sarcoma

The Pediatric Bone & Soft Tissue Sarcoma Center at UCLA is dedicated to providing comprehensive care for children and young adults who have been diagnosed with bone or soft tissue cancers. To provide such a multidisciplinary approach, each individual case is discussed with the multitude of experts readily available within the center.

The program is currently one of the centers participating in the Sarcoma Alliance Research through Collaboration (SARC) global network, a non-profit organization dedicated to the development and support of clinical trial research for the prevention, treatment and cure of sarcomas. We are also a member of the Children's Oncology Group, and can enroll patients on national clinical trials.

For appointments and referrals, contact (310) 825-0867. For program information, contact (310) 825-6708 or visit their website at UCLA Health.
