Sarcoma - Preparing for surgery

Before surgery, your surgeon will perform comprehensive medical assessments including blood tests and scans to see if you are suitable for surgery and advise on the risks involved. Your treatment recommendation is often based on consensus by a multi-disciplinary team known as the tumour board, who come together to discuss the pros and cons of every treatment strategy recommended.

Before surgery, the anaesthesia team will assess your fitness for surgery and advise you on various aspects of general anaesthesia and pain control after surgery.

Specialist nurses will provide pre-surgery counselling so that you know what to expect.
