HIPEC at Beebe Medical Center

What is HIPEC?

HIPEC, or heated intraoperative peritoneal chemotherapy, 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.
