Gina Z. D'Amato, MD, associate professor and assistant director of Clinical Research, Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center, University of Miami Health System, discusses the importance of multidisciplinary care in sarcoma.

Ensuring that patients with sarcoma are treated with a multidisciplinary approach is a critical component to optimizing their care, says D'Amato.

A multidisciplinary care team should include medical oncologists, surgeons, radiation oncologists, interventional radiologists, plastic surgeons, and orthopedic oncologists, adds D’Amato.

With multiple major advances made in the sarcoma space in recent years, the need for multidisciplinary care is becoming more relevant, explains D’Amato.

In the coming years, novel treatments and developing a greater understanding of sarcoma may continue to move the field forward, concludes D’Amato.
