At Providence Sacred Heart Medical Center, we are here for you and your family – ready to answer your questions, address your concerns and take on your cancer with the most advanced treatments available.
Osteosarcoma is rare, but our experienced doctors know how to fight this cancer that starts in your bones. We stay up-to-date on the latest treatments and have helped people of all ages have successful outcomes.
Whether it’s you or your child fighting osteosarcoma, we will guide you on your cancer journey, working to help you heal in body and mind.
Treatment for osteosarcoma is based on several factors, including where the cancer is located, how advanced it is and your age and overall health. Our team works with you to develop a personalized treatment plan.
Treatments that may be part of your care include chemotherapy, radiation therapy, surgery and palliative care.
