Answer

A multidisciplinary approach is ideal for PRS. The surgical oncologist, who preferably has experience in treating sarcomas, should be involved at the outset for the diagnostic evaluation. In addition, input from the radiation oncologist and medical oncologist is necessary to achieve a coordinated treatment plan, particularly for patients in whom combined modality treatment is being contemplated.
