Hyperthermic Intraperitoneal Chemotherapy (HIPEC) Surgery

HIPEC is a unique surgery used to treat cancers in the abdominal cavity. It is a highly beneficial surgery as it has fewer side effects than regular chemotherapy and destroys cancer cells that can't be reached surgically by directly applying heated chemotherapy in the abdomen.

Conducted by our multidisciplinary team of physicians, the first step is to surgically remove all the visible cancerous tumors and the second is killing the residual cancerous cells by administering high doses of heated chemotherapy inside the abdomen.
