HIPEC at Miami Cancer Institute

Who benefits from HIPEC?

HIPEC is most often used to treat ovarian cancer. It may also be used to treat:

  1. Low-grade appendiceal cancer, or cancer of the appendix
  2. Colorectal cancer
  3. Mesothelioma

HIPEC is best used when there are no tumors left in the abdomen. Your care team will only use HIPEC if they are able to remove all visible tumors during your surgery (cytoreduction)

The MCI Approach

When you come to Miami Cancer Institute for HIPEC treatment, you will receive care from cancer specialists who have years of experience treating patients with HIPEC therapy. Our team has been providing HIPEC treatment longer than any other institution in the region.

We also incorporate a collaborative team approach to ensure the best possible outcomes for patients. This approach involves reviewing and discussing each patient’s cancer thoroughly to determine whether HIPEC is the best treatment option.

Many of our surgeons are also highly skilled in robotic surgery with HIPEC, and we are one of only a few centers in the country to offer this combination. Robotic surgery can help reduce hospital stays, cause less pain and speed up recovery. With fewer side effects and a quicker recovery, patients are able to undergo additional chemotherapy treatment faster, which can result in better outcomes.
