Surgical Oncology

Lourdes provides access to the finest surgical care available in Acadiana. Our advanced surgical team and oncology specialists have performed thousands of surgeries on many types of cancer with great precision and success.

As an important part of cancer care, surgery may be performed at different stages and for different purposes. Surgical procedures that we offer include biopsies (obtaining tissue for diagnosis), staging (determining the extent of the disease), tumor removal and reconstruction of affected parts of the body - as well as implanting of medical devices.

Following surgery, patients can recover in our dedicated inpatient oncology unit, which provides an environment specific to their cancer treatment needs.
