Sarcoma Oncology Program

The oncologists in the Sarcoma Oncology Program diagnose and treat sarcomas, malignant tumors occurring in tissue, which supports or connects other body structures and organs.

What is sarcoma?

Soft tissue sarcomas include cancers of the muscles, tendons, fat, cartilage, blood vessels, nerves, and synovial tissue. Sarcomas may also develop in bones. Most sarcomas are located in the feet, legs and arms, although they may occur in any area of the body.

Sarcoma Clinical Trials

Our physicians are also involved in a wide variety of research opportunities and clinical trials, giving our patients access to cutting-edge technologies and treatment offerings. Patients have the option to participate in research conducted at AAMC and at other locations across the nation.

In addition, the Anne Arundel Health System Research Institute has been named the inaugural affiliate of the Johns Hopkins Clinical Research Network. The network’s goal is to allow patients at regional health systems such as AAMC to benefit from their advances in areas such as diagnostic, treatment, and disease prevention. This affiliation gives our patients access to authoritative clinical research and an even wider range of options in patient care. Learn more about our research.
