Sarcomas: treatment at Institut Curie
Institut Curie has specialist teams working together for each patient in multidisciplinary consultation meetings (RCP). The “sarcoma” RCPs at Institut Curie are part of the Groupe Sarcome Français – Groupement d’Etudes pour les Tumeurs Osseuses (GSF-GETO).
It is essential that surgery be performed by a surgeon who is experienced in sarcomas and in incorporating surgery alongside other treatments. This is true of Institut Curie, where Dr Bonvalot and her team have performed surgery on more than 5,000 cases of sarcoma, making it one of the most experienced centers in Europe. The surgical team also includes thoracic and plastic surgeons.
Institut Curie also wishes to disseminate its expertise and reduce inequalities in patient care. For this reason, it has partnered with Cochin hospital and Paris-Descartes hospital to offer a unique university diploma course.
