About us

The Oxford Sarcoma Service is a large team of surgeons, oncologists, nurses, physiotherapists, researchers and co-ordinators who diagnose and treat sarcoma tumours.

We work together to try and ensure the best possible service is provided to those people where sarcoma is a potential diagnosis, and to those where it has been diagnosed and requires treatment. We also regularly monitor those that have been treated to ensure that the treatments have worked, and to promptly deal with sarcoma tumours that recur.

Our strengths lie in expertise within:

  • a dedicated plastic and reconstructive surgical team for the surgical management of bone and soft tissue tumours
  • a specialist histopathology service and academic University of Oxford bone biology research unit
  • a specialist Paediatric Oncology service
  • a specialist teenage and young adults service
  • dedicated head and neck sarcoma service
  • intra-abdominal sarcoma service
  • dedicated sarcoma Clinical Nurse Specialists
  • a weekly multidisciplinary team clinic and meeting, including surgical specialists
  • a dedicated Spinal Surgery service treating primary and secondary tumours of the spine
  • special expertise with the administration of high dose chemotherapy
  • a specialist Bone Infection Unit within the hospital - the only one of its kind in the UK
  • provision of supermicrosurgery for the treatment of lymphoedema.
