Medical Oncology is the field of medicine which specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of cancer. Cancer is treated in numerous ways: chemotherapy; immunotherapy; surgery; radiation therapy; along with new therapies that are continuously evolving. Dr. David Oubre and the cancer team at Pontchartrain Cancer Center are experts in prescribing and the supervision of chemotherapy and immunotherapy administration.
