CPOC and The King Hussein Cancer Centre

The Christie NHS Foundation Trust and The King Hussein Cancer Centre (KHCC) in Jordan have signed a memorandum of understanding to support and train a team there in Cytoreductive Surgery with Hyperthermic Intraperitoneal Chemotherapy (CRS/HIPEC). As part of this, Mr. Omer Aziz and Professor Sarah O’Dwyer travelled to Jordan last week and performed their first 2 CRS/HIPEC cases with the KHCC team.

Through this initiative, The Christie Colorectal and Peritoneal Oncology Centre aims to help establish this treatment for patients with advanced cancers in the Jordan and the Middle East.
