Lieselotte Tansey Breast Center at Ochsner
A Department of Ochsner Medical Center
Lieselotte Tansey Breast Center at Ochsner was established to provide an interdisciplinary approach to the detection and treatment of breast disease in a serene and beautiful environment. At the Breast Center, fellowship trained surgical oncologists and radiologists that specialize in the evaluation and management of breast disease work together in the same facility to provide women with comprehensive breast services and swift diagnosis. By working in close proximity, the Breast Center fosters synergy and efficiency that is unachievable in any other setting.
Lieselotte Tansey Breast Center at Ochsner 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.
The Breast Center Team is comprised of compassionate and caring individuals who understand and acknowledge the concerns, anxieties and fears that many women experience when faced with the possibility of breast cancer. We are also actively involved in breast cancer research, helping to develop new and more effective methods of preventing, diagnosing and treating breast disease. Past research has had far-reaching positive effects on breast cancer treatment, and studies underway offer the promise of even greater changes.
The Breast Center was named after Mrs. Lieselotte Tansey, a breast cancer survivor and Ochsner patient whose generosity made the Breast Center a reality. Mrs. Tansey resided in Germany and came to Ochsner for her healthcare. She realized the value of having a place where women can get a swift diagnosis and treatment for breast cancer in a pleasant environment. It is because of her support that we are able to fulfill the mission of the Breast Center.
