Sarcoma can cause tumors in your bones or connective tissue in any location throughout your body. In the past, surgery was the only option to remove sarcomas. However, thanks to new technology, a new minimally invasive procedure may destroy sarcoma cells using just a needle.
Ablation therapy uses extreme heat or cold to destroy sarcoma cells while leaving healthy cells undamaged. The procedure is performed by interventional radiologists, who specialize in using imaging guidance to perform minimally invasive procedures.
In some patients, tumors can metastasize (spread) to your liver and/or lung. These lesions may also be targeted with ablation. The liver lesions in certain types of metastatic sarcoma such as gastrointestinal stromal tumor (GIST) respond well to intraarterial therapy of embolization. This treatment involves blocking the blood supply to the tumors.
We offer a wide range of sarcoma treatments to help patients receive the care that’s right for them working together with our oncology, radiation oncology and surgical colleagues. Our expert interventional radiologists perform ablation and embolization therapies for sarcomas so that patients who cannot undergo surgery have other treatment options.
