Cancer Rehabilitation

Baton Rouge General’s expert physicians, skilled nurses and other professionals use leading-edge technology to deliver personalized cancer care in an atmosphere of hope and encouragement. From detection and diagnosis to treatment and recovery, all our resources combine to develop a comprehensive treatment plan specifically for you.

Depending on the type of cancer you are facing, your physician may recommend therapy during or after your treatment. Much like nutrition, exercise can play a significant role in fighting your cancer, speeding your recovery and decreasing the chance of side effects. Your doctor may recommend rehabilitation and therapy with individual therapists or group fitness programs.
