Hot chemo bath therapy at UC San Diego Moores Cancer Center
HIPEC, or heated intraperitoneal chemoperfusion, is a procedure to treat advanced abdominal cancers.
HIPEC is designed to kill any remaining cancer cells once all visible disease is removed surgically.
UC San Diego Moores Cancer Center is recognized worldwide for its development of novel cancer treatments, including HIPEC.
Surgical oncologist Joel Baumgartner, MD, a member of Moores Cancer Center's HIPEC team, describes the procedure.
