Centre of Excellence for Peritoneal surface malignancy

AIIO has been certified as a centre of excellence to treat peritoneal surface malignancies, one of the deadliest groups of cancers.

Peritoneal surface malignancies are serious cancers that develop on the lining of the abdomen, called the peritoneum. They often develop when tumours from the appendix, rectum, colon, stomach, ovaries or other organs spread to peritoneal surfaces.

Therapeutic procedures like Cytoreductive surgery with Hyperthermic Intraperitoneal Chemotherapy (HIPEC) and Pressurized Intraperitoneal Aerosol Chemotherapy (PIPAC) has been a boon to patients, making a palliative condition into a curative one.
