Dr. Omar Llaguna, Oncologic Surgeon with Miami Cancer Institute, explains intraperitoneal chemotherapy (HIPEC) procedure is a team approach. "We will sit down to review the imaging and to make sure we are on the same page." He points out they will review the pathology and have a multidisciplinary tool board. Dr. John Diaz, Gynecologic Oncologist with Miami Cancer Institute, says there are different types of patients, those who are well educated and able to find good resources on the internet, and others that never heard about the HIPEC and are very excited so they need to explain the benefits and the risks of this procedure.
