Pediatric Sarcoma Multidisciplinary Program

One of the Only Programs of Its Kind in the Nation Set in a Community-Based Hospital

Pediatric Sarcoma Multidisciplinary ProgramIn collaboration with the Herman & Walter Samuelson Children’s Hospital at Sinai, our unique Pediatric Sarcoma Multidisciplinary Program provides highly specialized care for children and adolescents diagnosed with sarcoma tumors, which make up at least 15 percent of childhood cancers. Sinai Hospital is one of the only community-based hospitals in the country with a multidisciplinary team composed of a pediatric fellowship-trained orthopedic oncologist, pediatric medical oncologists, and radiation oncologists supported by a pediatric ICU to effectively treat malignant tumors in children.

Our program specializes in limb-sparing surgery for pediatric patients with primary malignant bone tumors such as Ewing's sarcoma and osteosarcoma.
