Colorectal Cancer Care in New Orleans
Our team is here to help
Colorectal cancer is one of the most commonly diagnosed cancers in the country, ranking third for both men and women. This cancer begins with the growth of polyps within the wall of the colon. If they grow large enough and go untreated they can travel to other parts of your body.
Screenings and treatment
Screenings are an important way to prevent colorectal cancer. Those over the age of 45 should have a screening every 5-10 years.
We offer treatment plans that can prevent a person from requiring an ostomy (an opening created in the abdomen). In cases where avoiding an ostomy isn’t possible, our patient care nurses are here to assist you.
