“The administration of chemotherapy is an art and a science,” states Dr. Chawla. Effective treatment plans effectively combat cancer, prevent recurrence, minimize side effects and allow for the highest quality of life for patients. Over 50% of Dr. Chawla’s patients can work during chemotherapy and maintain their daily routine activities and exercise through their treatment.

Surgery can be a particularly effective option after initial chemotherapy to shrink sarcoma tumors. With the advent of new adjuvant chemotherapy, improved technique in surgery and the availability of internal prostheses, amputation is now avoided in approximately 95% of sarcoma cases. Radiation is another effective tool used to combat sarcomas in specific, localized areas. Radiation works by sterilizing the tumor cells and making them unable to divide and continue to grow.

Physicians at the Sarcoma Oncology Center specialize in new and cutting-edge sarcoma treatments. That’s why patients travel to them from all around the world.
