Because sarcomas are rare, it is important to be diagnosed and treated by physicians who have extensive experience in managing these tumors. Johns Hopkins has a multi-specialty team that reviews each case together prior to treatment, manages and participates in treatment as a coordinated team, and manages each sarcoma patient with close surveillance to monitor recurrence. Dr. Nita Ahuja discusses the importance of this team.
