Mesothelioma Cancer Centers
Established in 2016 by the Jordan Valley Medical Center, the Jordan Valley Cancer Center provides advanced cancer care to patients in Utah. Partnering with Utah Cancer Specialists, the Jordan Valley Cancer Center delivers an innovative treatment approach based on a multidisciplinary model to care for patients with the most difficult to treat cancers, such as mesothelioma. Offering the most advanced technologies and cancer treatments currently available, specialists at the Jordan Valley Cancer Center bring together this high-level quality of medicine with compassionate care to guide patients as they progress from the diagnosis stage to the development and employment of a unique treatment plan and ensuing follow-up services.
At the present time, physicians at the Jordan Valley Cancer Center are the only physicians in Utah and its surrounding area to offer hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy (HIPEC)—an innovative form of cancer treatment for aggressive cancers such as mesothelioma, ovarian, and appendix cancers.
During a HIPEC procedure, a heated and highly concentrated dose of chemotherapy is administered into the abdominal cavity directly targeting cancer cells in that area. The benefits of HIPEC are that it allows for a higher dose of chemotherapy to be used; the chemotherapy is better absorbed and concentrated in the abdomen which decreases exposure to other areas of the body and in some cases, reduces some of the common side effects prevalent with more traditional forms of chemotherapy.
Mesothelioma patients who reside in Utah and surrounding states should consider the Jordan Valley Cancer Center for its comprehensive approach to cancer treatment, its wide range of cancer treatment options, including the innovative HIPEC procedure, and its integrative approach to medicine that focuses on all aspects of a cancer patient’s needs.
