Comprehensive Care for Children and Young Adults with Tumors of the Bone and Soft Tissues

The Sarcoma Program at Cincinnati Children’s is a national leader in providing advanced therapies for children with tumors of the bone and soft tissues. Led by Joseph Pressey, MD, a pediatric oncologist, and Joel Sorger, MD, an orthopaedic surgeon, our team of pediatric and young adult cancer specialists cares for a large number of sarcoma patients, which means they have deep knowledge and experience in treating this challenging type of cancer.

Some of our patients have newly diagnosed sarcomas, while others come to Cincinnati Children’s seeking novel therapies for recurrent, rare or treatment-resistant sarcomas. Our team treats all forms of sarcoma, with patients ranging in age from infancy well into young adulthood. Learn more about the conditions we treat.
