Patient Information about HIPEC
Your surgical oncologist has determined that you are a good candidate for the hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemoperfusion (HIPEC) procedure. Your surgeon will explain the details of HIPEC, including risks and benefits.
Most patients and families are understandably anxious about having surgery and may have many questions about the procedure. To help answer many of these questions, the David C. Koch Regional Therapy Cancer Center has designed an educational website to help patients and their families understand the HIPEC procedure.
The following video links will provide patients scheduled for HIPEC with information about HIPEC and what to expect before, during, and following the surgical and diagnostic procedures.
The videos may contain graphic images of medical procedures unsuitable for some audiences. The contents are intended to provide potential patients with information on the procedures.
