Chemotherapy Treatment with HIPEC

Hyperthermic Intraperitoneal Chemotherapy, or HIPEC, is a highly specialized surgical procedure that involves the administration of heated chemotherapy directly into the abdomen during surgery. This targeted approach allows for maximum exposure of cancer cells to the chemotherapy drugs while minimizing the side effects associated with traditional chemotherapy. During the procedure, the patient lies on a special cooling blanket to keep their body temperature at safe levels, and the surgeon gently rocks the patient back and forth on the operating table for about 1.5 to 2 hours.

What kind of cancer does HIPEC treat?

  • Appendix cancer
  • Colon and rectal cancer
  • Gastric (stomach) cancer
  • Mesothelioma
  • Ovarian cancer
  • Peritoneal cancer

Am I a HIPEC candidate?

Talk to your doctor about whether or not HIPEC is the right treatment option for you. This procedure can improve outcomes and provide more treatment options for patients who have been diagnosed with advanced stage cancer.
