Sarcoma Center Heidelberg

The Sarcoma Center at Heidelberg University Hospital (UKHD) has been certified according to the criteria of the German Cancer Society (DKG) since 2023. The scope includes both bone and soft tissue sarcomas.

The sarcoma center in Heidelberg diagnoses and treats bone- and soft tissue sarcomas with an interdisciplinary approach. The center stands out due to its excellent interdisciplinary cooperation of different departments. During the weekly sarcoma boards the progress and treatment of about 600 patients is discussed every year. Participants of the sarcoma boards are  orthopedic surgeons, visceral surgeons, plastic surgeons, medical oncologists, radiotherapists, radiologists, pathologists and if needed thoracic surgeons as well as representatives of other departments. Together they evaluate the appropriate treatment strategy for each patient.
