The term sarcoma covers malignant tumors of soft tissues and bones, which call for highly specialized diagnostics and therapy. Due to the rarity of these tumors, treatment at specialized centers is of particular importance.
To meet this requirement, the Sarcoma Center Dresden was established in 2016. It is part of the National Center for Tumor Diseases Dresden (NCT/UCC), which has been funded by Deutsche Krebshilfe as an Oncological Center of Excellence for the treatment of cancer since 2007.
The Sarcoma Center at NCT/UCC Dresden fulfills the quality criteria set by the German Cancer Society (DKG) and is a DKG-recommended sarcoma center. In addition, the Sarcoma Center has a certified quality management system that meets DIN EN ISO 9001.
The aim of the Sarcoma Center is to optimize the complex process of diagnosis and therapy of bone and soft tissue sarcomas in children, adolescents and adults by pooling expertise and infrastructure in line with existing guidelines and study protocols.
