Treatment of peritoneal carcinomatosis has changed radically over the last years.
Whereas in the early 2000s it was thought that treatment should be solely based on palliative care, nowadays experts believe more strongly in an aggressive, multifactorial approach in which physicians of various specializations are involved.
This approach has borne fruit, since it has provided satisfactory survival rates in a number of cases and for specific histological types of cancer. Implementing this method on carefully selected patients may provide increased chance of survival and acceptable morbidity rates.
The Euromedica group's "Kyanous Stavros" general clinic in Thessaloniki has an oncology department to treat peritoneal carcinomatosis. This department is staffed with a team of experienced and specialized doctors and equipped with state-of-the-art medical equipment. This specific department helps its patients get better by providing exceptional medical services through specialized medical techniques, training and research.
The www.hipeceuromedica.gr website offers constant updates and a host of information on the suggested treatment with cytoreductive surgery and Hyperthermic intraoperative peritoneal chemotherapy (HIPEC), and it also allows you to contact our clinic's medical team.
