Specialized Cancer Treatment - Beebe's HIPEC Center

Beebe Healthcare’s Surgical Oncology Department offers Cytoreductive Surgery (CS) and Hyperthermic Intraperitoneal Chemotherapy (HIPEC). CS/HIPEC is an advanced procedure provided in an operating room by a team of highly skilled surgeons. It is considered as an option when cancer has spread into the abdomen, such as in the cases of advanced colon, ovarian and appendiceal cancers. It is a long procedure that starts with cytoreductive surgery, which is an operation to remove any visible cancer. Then, the heated chemotherapy drug was infused into the abdominal cavity, and circulated for as long as two hours. The HIPEC procedure is designed to destroy any remaining cancer cells directly, and allows for minimal exposure to the rest of the body and fewer side effects.

For more information on HIPEC treatment, call Beebe Surgical Oncology at: (302) 644-0964.
