As one of the nation’s first institutions to diagnose and treat Kaposi sarcoma (KS) in people who developed the illness as a result of infection with HIV/AIDS, Memorial Sloan Kettering offers an unparalleled level of diagnosis and treatment expertise. We continue to be attuned to the latest treatment approaches for this illness and can offer many people a route to manage their disease and achieve long-term remission — regardless of the cause of their illness.    

At Memorial Sloan Kettering, we also diagnose and treat other AIDS-Associated Cancers.
