Video: What is the main benefit of HIPEC?

Dr. Esquivel discusses how hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy, or HIPEC, can penetrate and destroy cancer cells that remain in the abdomen after surgery.

Dr. Esquivel explains that hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy can be highly effective because the tumor is surgically removed first, then it is followed by targeted chemotherapy of microscopic cancer cells present at the time of surgery.
