Event description


The St George Hospital Peritonectomy Unit conference will provide attendees with clinical and scientific information on peritoneal surface malignancies and create awareness regarding innovative treatments that will improve the quality of life for patients. The target audience of this conference includes healthcare practitioners in the field of Surgical Oncology, Medical Oncology, Gastroenterology, Gynaecology, Radiology, Allied Health and Nursing.

We have four excellent, internationally renowned speakers that have all contributed to major advances in our knowledge of cytoreductive surgery and hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy.

Olivier Glehen MD. PhD. will present data taken from the French National Peritonectomy database including their experience of developing a National French Service. His team has one of the largest experiences of gastric cancer and were the first to describe the outstanding results of Peritonectomy for platinum resistant ovarian cancer. They have been centrally involved in the prophylactic treatment of patients at high risk of peritoneal recurrence from colorectal cancer.

Professor Ignace de Hingh MD. PhD, from the Netherlands, has been central in the treatment of colorectal and ovarian cancer with Peritonectomy.The first randomised controlled trial on Peritonectomy (for colorectal cancer) was done in Amsterdam and he has recently completed a randomised control trial in ovarian cancer. The Dutch population studies on appendiceal adenocarcinoma and colorectal cancer are unequalled.

Dr Brendan Moran MCh, FRCS, FRCSI from Basingstoke, which was the first NHS Peritonectomy Unit, has experience of over 1000 patients with Pseudomyxoma Peritoniei (PMP). Brendan has been involved in the establishment of the Royal Prince Alfred Peritonectomy Unit.

Dr Rea Lo Dico, MD. PhD. from the unit of Pocard in Paris, she has the largest experience in the world of combined liver resection and Peritonectomy HIPEC.

Our Peritonectomy Unit was the first in the Southern Hemisphere, we have performed 1250 Peritonectomy procedures to date and are recognised as an international leader. Our clinical and basic science research programs have been responsible for over 300 publications and we have an active drug development project on cancer, particularly treatment of mucinous peritoneal malignancy.

We will be hosting a dinner in Sydney CBD on Saturday the 24 February 2018 7pm. Please RSVP and make payment by the 15 December 2017. Payment details provided on registration. Location TBA.
