Section of Hematology / Oncology

Welcome to the Hematology-Oncology section. Our goals are to provide the highest quality clinical care for patients, to conduct high quality research, and to train the next generation of Hematologists and Oncologists. Our section is driven by six full time faculty and three adjunct clinical faculty. 

Our full time clinical faculty members focuses on a specific area of cancer research and treatment.  Individual patient care is provided in close collaboration with our LSU colleagues from surgery, radiation oncology, pathology, radiology, nutrition, nursing, physical and occupational therapy.  We provide care at the University Medical Center of New Orleans, the VA Medical Center and through the LSU Health Care Network in New Orleans.

Despite important advances in treatment, cancer continues to be a major public health problem and our faculty is dedicated not only to provide state of the art care to every patient affected with cancer, but also to develop and discover new lifesaving treatments for people affected by this disease. We are an important part of the Stanley S. Scott Cancer Center, a multidisciplinary organization whose researchers and clinicians are dedicated to furthering research on the pathogenesis, prevention, treatment, and eventual eradication of cancer.

Our ACGME-accredited Hematology and Oncology fellowship program trains six fellows.  

We invite you to explore our website and learn about our patient care services, clinical cancer experts, training opportunities and clinical trials. We encourage you to contact us.

Clinical trials are available through the LSUHSC Stanley Scott Cancer Center.
