Management of Peritoneal Surface Malignancies

Most cancers involving the peritoneum metastasize from colorectal, appendiceal, ovarian, pancreatic, gastric, and other abdominal cancers. Peritoneal surface malignancies (PSMs) can be very difficult to treat, and until recently were considered an incurable disease when occurring as metastasis. Join Dr. Ben Yaacov as he explores the paradigm shift in PSM treatment from palliation into a new era of radical surgery combined with heated chemotherapy (HIPEC): offering long-term survival (cure) or prolonged disease-free survival for most patients and providing many with new hope.

Q&A Session

During the Q&A session, participants will be able to ask Dr. Ben Yaacov any questions they may have concerning his lecture or other clinical issues.

Robotic Surgery for Urological Malignancies

Since the early 2000s, surgical treatment of urological malignancies has moved towards minimally invasive approaches. In recent years, advanced robotic surgical systems, which can offer significantly shorter recovery times for patients, have also become prevalent in leading medical institutions. Join Dr. Dotan as he explores the latest advances in minimally invasive urological surgery, highlighting treatment procedures at a global leader in the field: Sheba Medical Center’s Department of Urology.

Q&A Session

During the Q&A session, participants will be able to ask Dr. Dotan any questions they may have concerning his lecture or other clinical issues.

The Impact of Technology on Advances in the Treatment of Gynecological Cancers
