Building

A department of LSU Health Shreveport in Northwest Louisiana, Feist-Weiller Cancer Center is an academic facility with many different board certified specialists who work together to provide comprehensive cancer care. Oncologists, hematologists, surgeons, radiologists, therapists and basic science researchers collaborate to offer preeminent cancer research, cancer prevention programs and excellent treatment to cancer patients.

Medical oncologists and hematologists at Feist-Weiller Cancer Center are board certified in internal medicine, then specially trained and certified in medical oncology (cancer medicine), hematology (blood disorders) or both. Specialists in Surgical Oncology, ENT Oncology, Radiation Oncology, GYN Oncology, Urologic Oncology, Neuro Oncology and Orthopaedic Oncology join forces with adult and pediatric oncologists and hematologists to develop the most appropriate and personalized treatment plan for each patient.

Among the signature strengths of Feist-Weiller Cancer Center is translational cancer research in which physicians and scientists take clinical problems from the bedside to the research laboratory where solutions are generated that come back to the bedside. This type of research allows the scientific discoveries to more rapidly become practical applications that can be used in assessment and treatment of cancer patients.

Patient care at Feist-Weiller Cancer Center is comprehensive and unique. Through LSU Health Shreveport's partnership with St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, the outpatient facility includes a St. Jude Affiliate Clinic in which children are treated according to detailed St. Jude protocols.
