Yes, if it is caught early, before metastasis. The only cure for ES is surgery, either a wide local excision or amputation. Chemotherapy and radiation can help, but they are secondary treatments. I would hesitate to say that METASTATIC epithelioid sarcoma CAN'T be cured -- there may well circumstances I am not envisioning, and new drugs are always being developed. That said, if the tumor metastasizes to a local node and the whole area is removed, there's a chance. If has metastasized widely (to, say, organs or lymph nodes far from the primary tumor), the disease is probably incurable. This page http://www.cardblueblog.com/2008/04/es-prognosis-median-is-not-message.html includes a chart summarizing ES outcomes from several papers, and also links to a medical journal article titled Epithelioid Sarcoma: still only a surgically curable disease.
