A world-renowned expert in treating peritoneal malignancies with Hyperthermic Intra-Peritoneal Chemotherapy (HIPEC), Dr. Levine has stated that “Long-term survival is clearly possible for selected patients treated with HIPEC.” An analysis of two decades of data examining 1,000 patients who underwent 1,095 HIPEC procedures at Wake Forest Baptist–7.2% where mesothelioma was a primary tumor site–demonstrated a median overall survival of 29.9 months, with a five-year survival of 32.5%.

Dr. Levine’s research interests include, but are not limited to, chemotherapy, cancer, regional perfusion, peritoneal neoplasms, and antineoplastic combined chemotherapy. He serves as a principal investigator on approximately 25 active clinical research trials.
