Mammography

Each year, nearly 27,000 women in Louisiana will be diagnosed with breast cancer. Almost 10,000 will die from the disease. The best tools we have to prevent these deaths are awareness and mammography.
The Breast Care Center at East Jefferson General Hospital is the region’s most advanced/comprehensive center for breast cancer diagnosis and prevention. Our radiologists specialize in Breast Cancer diagnoses, which means that our advanced technology is used by the best doctors to provide you with the best care. That specialization gives you the greatest levels of confidence in both what is detected and just as importantly, what is not found.

Minimally invasive hysterectomy

Today’s minimally invasive surgeries are unlike anything before. The incisions are dramatically smaller, the surgical time is shorter, the hospital stay is shorter, the recovery time is dramatically shorter, and the results are superior. East Jefferson General Hospital helped pioneer this more patient-friendly approach to surgeries in this region and, over the past decade, has continuously raised the bar in providing extraordinary care and outcomes. Most importantly, the continuity of care that you will receive knowing that the same doctor-surgeon who performs your hysterectomy is also there to assist in all other aspects of your menopausal and post-menopausal health gives you peace of mind.
