A Comprehensive Approach to Cancer Care



Accredited by the American College of Surgeons-Commission on Cancer (ACS-COC), the Cancer Center at UMC New Orleans (UMCNO) offers patients a comprehensive approach to their cancer care. We offer the latest technologies for the early detection and prevention of cancer, as well as the most up-to-date treatment options based upon national treatment guidelines put forth by the National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN). We utilize a team approach to discuss a personalized treatment plan for each patient, developing a consensus of care through our scheduled conferences attended by all of our cancer physicians and specialists from medical, surgical and radiation oncology.

The Cancer Center at UMCNO provides patients with a single location for clinic visits, treatment planning, surgical needs, chemotherapy infusion and radiation oncology services. We have a state-of-the art imaging center for every possible need, such as screening/diagnostic mammograms, ultrasound, CT scans, MRI, PET/CT scans and several other radiographic studies that may be required. We also have a growing portfolio of clinical trials for various types of cancers, often only available here at UMCNO.

We are absolutely committed to providing the highest level of quality cancer care for all of our patients, utilizing a truly patient-centered approach to cancer care.
