The Sarcoma Clinic at Children’s National: What to Expect

Before each visit, our experts discuss your child’s case in our sarcoma tumor board. During these meetings, we review the unique aspects of your child’s condition. This helps us determine the best care for your child and which specialists he or she needs to see.

During your child’s visit, we may:

  • Review their latest imaging scans
  • Monitor progress, side effects, and complication risks associated with current treatments
  • Develop plans for future treatments or make changes to existing ones
  • Assess whether your child’s treatments are affecting their growth and development
  • Discuss any support needs you or your family may have and connect you to our resources

Depending on your child’s condition and where they are in their treatment, he or she may need to visit the sarcoma clinic once a week or every few months.

The Oncology Program at Children's National

Our Oncology Program is ranked #6 in the nation by U.S. News & World Report. Our cancer programs diagnose and care for more children each year than any other Washington, D.C., metro area hospitals and we’re home to some of the world’s leading pediatric cancer experts. We also don’t care just for your child’s physical symptoms – we offer services, amenities and resources to ease some of the stress that comes with having a sick child.
