Cancer : About

Fighting cancer demands a lot of a body. Chemotherapy can be especially difficult. Guidance and information from a registered dietitian can help by making sure that the body gets the nutrients it needs while meeting the demands of cancer treatments. Ochsner-registered dietitians provide in-depth individualized assessment for all Ochsner cancer patients. Our dietitians also provide excellent advice to aide the relief of side effects that have nutrition-related consequences, which are associated with chemotherapy and radiation. The Ochsner dietitians also participate in The Breast Cancer Information and Support Group, providing nutritional tips and counseling on meal planning. For more information on Ochsner's various cancer services, visit the Ochsner Cancer Institute and the Lieselotte Tansey Breast Center at Ochsner.
