Combining therapies to attack cancer
If your cancer involves the lining of the abdominal cavity (peritoneum), you may be a candidate for hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy (HIPEC). This therapy delivers a high concentration of heated cancer-fighting drugs directly to the cancerous area.
During the procedure, our oncologists surgically remove visible tumors, then direct an infusion of high-dose chemotherapy drugs into the abdominal area to destroy remaining cancer cells. The innovative procedure minimizes exposure to the rest of the body, reduces side effects of chemotherapy and improves curative effects.
Only our team of cancer experts at Goshen Center for Cancer Care have the experience and training to perform this advanced surgical treatment in our region.
