Sarcoma

Comprehensive sarcoma treatment at the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital – one of only five designated centres for bone and soft tissue cancers in the country.

At RNOH Private Care, our commitment to sarcoma care is rooted in expertise, innovation, and compassion. Sarcomas are rare cancers that affect the bones, muscles, and connective tissues, requiring specialised attention for accurate diagnosis and effective treatment.

The Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital is one of only five designated centres in the country which specialises in the care and treatment of patients who suffer from bone and soft tissue cancers. Treatment includes bespoke endo-prostheses, bone transportation and bone grafting.

Our team of surgeons work with a team of oncologists and other specialists including the on-site Biomedical Engineering Unit, in providing a specially tailored package of care for each patient including surgical investigation, radiotherapy and chemotherapy.
