Scripps MD Anderson Cancer Center is a leader in caring for women with uterine sarcoma. The most common treatment for these tumors is surgery, and Scripps surgeons offer advanced surgical treatments, including minimally invasive robotic surgery that requires just a few small incisions, potentially resulting in a faster recovery and minimal scarring.
Our cancer teams personalize treatment to eliminate cancer while maintaining your quality of life. In addition, our multidisciplinary, collaborative board of cancer specialists reviews complex care plans to ensure patients receive the best possible care from diagnosis to recovery.
Uterine sarcoma, also known as endometrial sarcoma, is a rare form of gynecologic cancer that starts in the muscle and tissue of the uterus.
The most appropriate uterine sarcoma treatment options depend on several factors, including the type and stage of the cancer, whether a woman wants to become pregnant, and her overall health.
Scripps diagnoses and treats uterine sarcomas at numerous locations throughout San Diego County. From Chula Vista and La Jolla to Encinitas and beyond, our extensive network of Southern California cancer care centers includes:
- Four Scripps hospitals on five campuses
- Outpatient clinics
- Specialty cancer treatment centers
