Gastrointestinal cancers are cancers that arise from the digestive tract that includes the stomach, the esophagus, the appendix and the small and large intestines. Gastrointestinal cancers are the second most common cause of peritoneal cancer after ovarian cancer.
The peritoneum is a thin membrane that lines the inner wall of the abdominal cavity. It is an organ just like other organs of the body (the lungs, the liver, the kidneys and the brain). Cancer spread to the peritoneum is called peritoneal cancer.
Gynecological cancers are cancers that arise from a woman’s reproductive organs like the uterus, the ovaries and the fallopian tubes and the cervix. Ovarian and fallopian tube cancers are the most common source of peritoneal cancer.
Dr. Aditi Bhatt is a Surgical Oncologist with expertise in performing cytoreductive surgery and HIPEC (performed to treat pseudomyxoma peritonei, colorectal cancer, ovarian cancer, stomach cancer and others).
Dr. Aditi gave me a second life!
I want to thank her for her efforts, confidence & positive approach towards depressed patients like me.
My mother’s health was deteriorating day by day because of a rare cancer, pseudomyxoma peritonei. Dr. Aditi advised us to opt for cytoreductive surgery and thanks to her my mother is now able to live a normal life.
When my mother was diagnosed with pseudomyxoma peritonei, no one offered any hope that she would be ok. Dr. Aditi performed Cytoreductive surgery and HIPEC, because of which my mother is physically active and is slowly improving.
