Dr. Shanel Bhagwandin is changing the lives of patients with peritoneal malignancies, including mesothelioma. He has helped initiate a program at Jupiter Medical Center to treat peritoneal malignancies with hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy (HIPEC). During HIPEC, a patient has heated chemotherapy washed around in their abdominal cavity. This procedure typically follows after the surgical removal of a patient’s tumors. HIPEC allows mesothelioma specialists to treat a patient’s disease more aggressively. By applying a high dose of chemotherapy directly to the site of a patient’s cancer, experts believe that it helps reduce the risk of it recurring.
