The University of Florida has been a leader in research and treatment of sarcoma for over 40 years. This continues today at the University of Florida Proton Therapy Institute where sarcoma in adults and children is a top priority. Our physicians are always glad to evaluate any patient who may need radiation therapy as part of the treatment plan. We work closely with an experienced team of sarcoma surgeons and medical oncologists.
We strongly recommend your evaluation for proton therapy takes place before any surgery or chemotherapy: A multidisciplinary plan should be designed in advance as treatment decisions may impact your eligibility for proton radiation.
Please feel free to contact us via the web, e-mail, or phone if you have any questions. Sometimes we can tell you whether or not you might benefit from proton therapy from this first inquiry, but often we will need further information before making a final recommendation and we will work with you to gather that information.
