Breast Cancer

The Lieselotte Tansey Breast Center at Ochsner was established to provide a multi-disciplinary approach to the detection and treatment of breast cancer. The center offers one of the most comprehensive breast care programs in the Gulf South.

The Lieselotte Tansey Breast Center at Ochsner Medical Center has again been granted a three year/full accreditation designation by the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers (NAPBC), a program administered by the American College of Surgeons. Accreditation by the NAPBC is only given to those centers that have voluntarily committed to provide the highest level of quality breast care and that undergo a rigorous evaluation process and review of their performance. The Tansey Breast Center is the only breast cancer program in New Orleans accredited by the NAPBC.

Our multidisciplinary team of dedicated radiologists, surgeons, oncologists and nurse specialists offers a wide variety of breast care services ranging from comprehensive diagnostic studies to post-operative manual lymphedema drainage. Breast prosthesis fitting programs, high-risk breast and ovarian cancer genetics clinics and support programs are also available. In addition, we provide educational information and encourage patients to directly participate in their care and treatment plan.
