UK Markey Cancer Center orthopaedic oncologist Patrick O'Donnell, MD.
In the UK Markey Cancer Center’s Multidisciplinary Clinic, sarcoma patients are provided care customized to fit their needs. Our clinic offers expertise in the diagnosis and treatment of sarcomas found in a patient. In August 2017, Markey was designated as one of the nation’s Top 50 Cancer Centers by U.S. News & World Report.
The UK Markey Cancer Center is proud to be one of only two programs treating sarcomas in the state. The Sarcoma Oncology team treats both pediatric and adult patients suffering from sarcomas along with tumor-like conditions affecting the musculoskeletal system.
In addition to clinical care, this unique team of physicians and researchers is currently pursuing research in cancer immunotherapy, advanced tumor imaging, biomedical engineering of bone-like substances and clinical trials – all dedicated toward improved patient-centered care.
The overall five year survival rate for sarcoma patients is about 50 percent, according to the statistics from the National Cancer Institute (NCI).
Clinical trials help keep our cancer care on the leading edge by allowing researchers to apply cancer knowledge as it develops to give you the best chance of survival.
At Markey, our specialists place a high value on all areas of sarcoma treatment, from patient care designed for the unique patient to developing treatments of the future.
