Cytoreductive Surgery (CRS) and HIPEC (Hyperthermic IntraPeritoneal Chemotherapy) is a specialised treatment for tumours that have originated in or spread within the abdomen onto the peritoneum (i.e. the lining covering the surface of abdominal organs and the abdominal wall), such as appendix and colorectal cancer.
Good Hope Hospital (Sutton Coldfield, West Midlands) provides acute and elective specialised surgical services locally and regionally, including The Peritoneal Tumour Service.
This information resource has been specifically produced for patients referred for Cytoreductive Surgery and HIPEC, covering all steps of the ‘Patient Journey’ from initial referral to investigations, surgery, recovery and follow-up. Patients and their families can gain an in-depth understanding of what the surgery and post-operative care entails whilst familarising themselves with staff members and their specific roles.
