HIPEC Surgery for Metastatic GI Cancer

HIPEC Surgery for Metastatic GI Cancer

Sanjay P. Bagaria, M.D., discusses hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy (HIPEC) surgery for peritoneal carcinomatosis secondary to gastrointestinal (GI) cancers. HIPEC surgery involves removal of all visible cancer in the abdomen followed by treatment of the residual microscopic disease with heated chemotherapy. After cancer is resected, heated chemotherapy is infused and circulated in the abdomen for 90 minutes under a single operation.

Dr. Bagaria, with the Center for Breast Health and General Surgery at Mayo Clinic's campus in Florida, also offers minimally invasive (laparoscopic) HIPEC surgery to select patients.
