The orthopedic cancer specialists at Miami Cancer Institute provide the latest individualized treatments available for sarcoma, a rare type of cancer. Our orthopedic oncologists have access to a range of innovative technologies, a multidisciplinary clinic and a collaboration of specialists working together.
Miami Cancer Institute can provide access to clinical trials not widely available elsewhere. Clinical trials find new ways to treat and diagnose cancer and are ongoing. If an appropriate trial is available, we will talk to you about the benefits and risks.
