The American Hospital Dubai provides complete multidisciplinary treatment plans for patients with Cancer in Dubai. In selected patients, cytoreductive surgery and hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy (HIPEC), visible cancerous tumors are first removed from the abdominal cavity surgically. The cavity is then bathed with hot chemotherapy — heated to 42 degrees Celsius — to kill any microscopic cancer cells that remain. Hyperthermia augments the cytotoxicity of chemotherapy, and intraperitoneal installation allows for delivery of much higher doses locally than are possible systemically, while minimizing toxicity.

There are many types of tumors that are potentially treatable with HIPEC. Candidacy for HIPEC surgery is made on an individual basis. Some of the more commonly treated tumors include:

  • Mucinous tumor of appendix (LAMN)/Pseudomyxoma Peritonei
  • Appendix cancer with carcinomatosis
  • Colon or rectal cancer with carcinomatosis
  • Peritoneal mesothelioma
  • Primary peritoneal carcinoma
  • Ovarian cancer
