Retroperitoneal Sarcoma

Sarcomas are very rare cancers. There are several different types of sarcoma and they start in many different parts of the body, such as muscle, bone and fat.

Due to the wide variety of sarcomas, they are dealt with by a range of different surgical specialists. As abdominal surgeons, we operate on patients with sarcomas in the abdomen and at the back of the abdomen - retroperitoneal sarcomas.

Operations for retroperitoneal sarcoma

Surgery is often recommended as the treatment for retroperitoneal sarcoma if there is no evidence that it has spread elsewhere in the body.


These tumours are often very large by the time they are diagnosed and so the operation to remove them is usually major surgery and may involve removing other organs such as kidney or bowel, which may be stuck to the sarcoma.
