Treatments for Ewing Sarcoma in Children

Your Child's Care Begins Here

Our pediatric and adolescent bone and sarcoma treatment team focuses on children, teenagers and young adults because kids need a different treatment approach than adults when it comes to all cancers, including Ewing sarcoma. Through our multispecialty clinic, patients see a team of experts in single visit. All patients are reviewed in a multispecialty team conference that includes surgical, medical and radiation oncology, pathology, radiology and many other specialists. This team approach gives us a well-rounded perspective as we design the most powerful path to successfully treat your son or daughter. Each patient has a nurse navigator and leaves with a detailed verbal and written care plan—a road map for their cancer care.

When surgery is needed to remove tumors, we use the latest techniques to effectively remove the cancer. Our orthopedic oncology surgeons are also skilled at reconstructing complex areas, such as the spine and pelvis. 

As a pediatric member of the national Sarcoma Alliance for Research through Collaboration, we’re also able to offer the latest clinical trials. 


Treatments We Provide

Chemotherapy

Chemotherapy is an essential part of treating Ewing sarcoma. Powerful combinations of medicines attack cancer cells and prevent them from multiplying or spreading. Chemotherapy is often used in combination with radiation treatments.

Ewing Sarcoma Surgery

Surgery to remove a tumor or group of tumors is often a first treatment step for Ewing sarcoma, whether it's localized or metastasized.

Radiation Therapy

Radiation is frequently used in addition to chemotherapy and surgery to ensure that any remaining cancer cells have been destroyed.
