Your Treatment Begins Here

Primary peritoneal cancer is rare (two per million people). It occurs almost exclusively in women. Peritoneal cancer is usually very difficult to diagnose, as there is no specific test for it.  It is usually identified by using a combination of the following:

  • Physical examination
  • Ultrasound
  • CT Scan
  • Pet-Scan
  • Biopsy
  • Laparoscopy
  • Pathology
  • Endoscopy
  • Tumor Marker Tests

Our comprehensive multispecialty team diagnoses and treats more upper GI cancer cases than any other hospital in the region. We perform approximately 50 major surgeries for peritoneal cancer each year, and with these high volumes have improved patient and disease outcomes.
