Bogota surgeons stay ahead of the curve


As we’ve seen several times before, Bogotá surgeons stay ahead of the curve on cutting edge treatments.  In the last several weeks, HIPEC or Hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy (Sugarbaker procedure) has been dotting the news headlines in the United States, and across the globe.

But as my readers here at Bogotá Surgery know, not only have we talked about HIPEC in the past - Dr. Arias has been performing this procedure at Fundacion Santa Fe de Bogota since 2009.  He reports he did eight cases in May alone.  (This is considered fairly high volume if you review the amount of cases being done at other centers.)

Planning to catch up with Dr. Arias and check in later this summer..
