Research output: Contribution to journalReview article


This article provides an understanding of the evaluation, staging, and management of patients with extremity soft tissue sarcoma. Although there are straightforward guidelines to the management of patients with extremity soft tissue sarcoma, each patient presents with a unique tumor, and considerations for tumor control, functional outcome, and the toxicity of therapy must be considered. As is true for patients diagnosed with sarcoma at other anatomic sites, a multidisciplinary team approach streamlines care with attention to the complexities and intricacies of choosing and delivering optimal therapy.
