Dr. Jack “Jay” Saux III is the renowned “Pirate Oncologist” of St. Tammany Parish. He loves to dress up swashbuckling attire as he goes about his day of caring for his patients and helping everyone deal with the heaviness of a cancer diagnosis. His many patients love and adore him.
Dr. Saux was born in Lubbock, TX, and was raised in New Orleans, LA. He graduated from Jesuit High School, and then received his undergraduate degree in biological sciences from the University of New Orleans. He attended LSU Medical School in New Orleans and completed his residency in internal medicine at Earl K. Long Hospital in Baton Rouge. He began private practice in Napoleonville, LA, as an internist and taught at the Leonard J. Chabert Hospital in Houma. He returned to New Orleans to complete a fellowship in oncology at Tulane University Medical Center in 1998. He currently works at the Mary Bird Perkins Cancer Center at St. Tammany Hospital in Covington, where he cares for patients with many different types of oncologic and hematologic illnesses.
After being approached by Dr. Williams to join SIWSH, Dr. Saux attended the International Society for the Study of Women’s Sexual Health Conference in Scottsdale, AZ, where he quickly saw the great need for his many patients who have sexual dysfunctions after receiving chemotherapy and radiation. SIWSH offers his patients a more fulfilling life. Knowing the risks and benefits of a particular cancer treatment is paramount in helping women decide how to move forward with their diagnoses as they continue to thrive and survive.
