HIPEC or Hyperthermic Intraoperative Peritoneal Chemotherapy is a process of administering chemotherapy intraoperatively to treat cancer that have spread to the lining of the abdominal cavity. It is the treatment of choice for chemoresistant tumours in particular low grade mucinous cancers of the appendix and ovary.

HIPEC directly exposes the peritoneal surface to chemotherapy, and can achieve chemotherapy dose exposure concentrations many fold higher than what can be achieve via intravenous infusion. Our groups works with experienced peritoneal surgeons and have supported more than100 HIPEC procedures.
