Cancer Treatments

Care Plans Built for Your Unique Needs

Cancer comes in many different forms and everyone’s experience with the disease is different. For some patients, treatment may involve a single surgery, while others will need chemotherapy for several months or years. Cancer treatments are constantly evolving as oncologists discover new, more effective ways of fighting the disease. At West Jefferson Medical Center’s Cancer Center, we offer a comprehensive cancer treatment program that may include surgery, palliative care, survivorship services, and the only radiation therapy department on the West Bank of New Orleans.

Learn more about our cancer treatments:

  • Radiation Therapy – We offer the latest treatments in radiation therapy. This treatment involves using radiation to destroy a tumor or slow down its growth so that it can be removed through surgery.
  • Oncological Surgery If cancer has not spread to other parts of the body, it may be possible to remove the tumor through surgery and destroy lingering cancer cells with medication.
  • CyberKnife Radiosurgery – The CyberKnife® Radiosurgery System is an important cancer fighting weapon that can target most cancerous or non-cancerous tumors and lesions that surgery cannot. The treatment, which delivers beams of high dose radiation to tumors with extreme accuracy, is noninvasive and has created outstanding patient outcomes.

The patient’s needs come first. Our team will go through all of your treatment options with you and explain the side effects you might experience. Your treatment plan will be built from your personal preference and quality of life goals.
