Peritoneal Surface Malignancy Program

Peritoneal Surface Malignancy Program

The Peritoneal Surface Malignancy Program is the only program of its kind in Ontario. Peritoneal surface malignancies include a variety of tumours that involve abdominal organs and the peritoneal lining.

Our team includes surgical oncologists, residents, a Fellow (physicians completing a specialization), a nurse clinical coordinator, and a research coordinator.

We are a team that specializes in the treatment of peritoneal cancers and we use a coordinated team approach for our programs. Surgery may be done by any one of our surgeons despite who you meet at your first appointment. Our goal is to provide treatment in a timely manner.
