What is HIPEC?
Hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy (HIPEC) is an advanced targeted cancer procedure where highly concentrated, heated chemotherapy is delivered directly to the abdomen during surgery. In this, unlike traditional chemotherapy, HIPEC delivers high-dose chemotherapy directly to cancer cells in the abdomen. It reduces the rest of the body’s exposure to the chemotherapy and its subsequent side effects. It also improves the overall survival rate of among the selected, advance stage cancer patients.
