Peritoneal Metastases from Colorectal Cancer

Colon and rectal cancer sometimes spreads to the lining of the abdomen (peritoneal metastases).

With certain patients with this condition it is possible to perform Cytoreductive Surgery and Hyperthermic Intra-operative Peritoneal Chemotherapy (HIPEC) with the intention to cure. The first such operation in the UK was performed by surgeons at The Christie Colorectal and Peritoneal Oncology Centre and since then we have performed over 100 cases with 5-year survival rates of over 45%.
