I am newly diagnosed

A new diagnosis of cancer can be scary. The Ochsner Cancer Institute is here to connect you to the cancer care and resources that you need. 

The staff at the Ochsner Cancer Institute recognizes the importance of delivering the best cancer care possible for this region. With this goal in mind, we have implemented an integrated, team approach for taking care of our cancer patients. We have successfully organized multidisciplinary care teams of specialty-trained cancer physicians and nurses who, along with the support of our social workers, dieticians, and a psychosocial oncologist, work together to determine each individual patient’s course of treatment.
