Episode #9 focuses on Heated Intraperitoneal Chemotherapy (HIPEC) treatment. For those that may be unfamiliar with the topic, HIPEC is a highly concentrated and heated type of chemo directed at the abdomen during surgery. HIPEC differs from more traditional and systemic treatments due to the delivery of drugs into a patient's body. The chemo does not circulate through the entire body during HIPEC. It only delivers directly to the cancerous cells.
