Expertise in HIPEC
Dr. Kiran Turaga has expertise in hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy (HIPEC) for the treatment of malignant peritoneal mesothelioma. This treatment often follows cytoreductive surgery. The surgeon removes all visible tumors in the lining of the abdominal cavity and then delivers HIPEC to bathe the abdominal organs in chemotherapy, killing any remaining cancer cells.

Addressing Gaps in Care
