Doon’s Shri Mahant Indiresh Hospital starts high-dose chemotherapy for cancer treatment – ET HealthWorld

Dehradun: The cancer surgery department at Dehradun-based Shri Mahant Indiresh Hospital has started the hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy (HIPEC) method for the treatment of cancer patients.

Under the HIPEC technique, patients undergo high-dose chemotherapy in the abdomen at a high temperature. The procedure is helpful in killing cancer cells. While conventional cancer drugs don’t enter the blood circulation directly, the HIPEC technique provides an effective way to administer a large dose with minimal side effects. The treatment method has been proved to be highly effective in cases of intestine or ovary cancer.

Dr Pankaj Garg, head of the cancer surgery department at Shri Mahant Indiresh Hospital, said that a 79-year-old woman, who has appendix cancer, was the first patient to be given high-dose chemotherapy in the hospital.

He added that Shri Mahant Indiresh Hospital is the only medical facility in Uttarakhand where the HIPEC machine has been installed.

Meanwhile, Mahant Devendra Das Ji, the chairman of Shri Mahant Indiresh Hospital, congratulated the doctors on performing the HIPEC procedure.
