Adolescent and Young Adult Cancer and Survivorship

Age Appropriate, Comprehensive Cancer Care

The Adolescent and Young Adult Cancer and Survivorship Program at Ochsner provides treatment for patients ages 15 - 39 with most types of cancer. Researchers are discovering that many of the cancers that occur in this age group are biologically different than those seen at other ages. In addition, these patients have different medical, psychological and social needs than younger and older patients, and this program is designed to address these needs.

We treat patients who are:

  • Newly diagnosed
  • Currently in treatment
  • Cancer survivors (other than breast cancer)

Our physicians work together to provide a comprehensive treatment plan that is unique for each patient. Clinic takes place on the 1st and 3rd Wednesday of every month. Each patient will have one, 3 hour appointment and can see up to six specialists during that time. Patients will be evaluated for existing clinical trials that may be appropriate for them, including trials that are specific to patients in this age group.

Services Provided Include:

  • Pediatric oncology
  • Adult oncology
  • Urology/male infertility
  • Gynecology/female infertility
  • Psychosocial oncology
  • Anxiety and post-traumatic stress counseling
  • Social work
  • Nutrition
