Northside 101 is a series of interviews with Northside Hospital's experts, breaking down complex medical terms and procedures.

In this episode, cancer surgeon Dr. Malini D. Sur explains Hyperthermic Intraperitoneal Chemotherapy, also known as, HIPEC.

Northside was the first hospital in Atlanta to offer HIPEC to treat ovarian cancer. Performed during surgery, HIPEC delivers heated chemotherapy into the abdominal cavity, which allows a much higher dose of chemo to permeate the diseased tissue than could be accomplished conventionally.

Watch here as Dr. Sur explains the procedure.
