Soft Tissue Sarcoma Experts

William D. Tap, MD -- Section Chief, Sarcoma Oncology, Melanoma and Sarcoma Service As Chief of Memorial Sloan Kettering’s Sarcoma Medical Oncology Service, William Tap helps bring new therapies to patients with soft tissue sarcoma.

When you schedule your first appointment at Memorial Sloan Kettering, we’ll likely have you start by meeting with a specialist who can explain your diagnosis to you and answer any questions you may have. Our team of sarcoma specialists will shape a treatment approach that makes sense to you. They’ll consider not only the type of sarcoma you have but also what part of your body the disease is affecting and what symptoms you’re experiencing.

We’ve been diagnosing and treating sarcomas of all types for many decades and care for more than 1,000 patients with the disease each year. We’re proud that we keep our relationships with patients going once their treatment is over to be sure that they and their loved ones get the follow-up care they need not just to survive but to thrive.
