    Hyperthermic Intraperitoneal Chemotherapy

Get to Know Dr. Jeremiah L. Deneve

Dr. Jeremiah Deneve is a surgical oncologist who helped start a program using cytoreduction and hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy, also known as HIPEC, at the University of Tennessee Health Science Center in Memphis.

The combination treatment has dramatically improved the prognosis of patients with various abdominal malignancies, including mesothelioma, a rare cancer once considered almost untreatable.

It is an arduous procedure that first involves removing all visible tumor growth throughout the abdominal cavity.

It is followed by the direct delivery of a heated, high-dose chemotherapy solution, which is circulated for up to 90 minutes before it is drained and the abdomen is closed.

The second phase is designed to kill any tumor cells that evaded the surgeon.

Deneve also treats melanoma, other soft tissue sarcomas and pancreatic and gastrointestinal cancers.

He is part of Methodist LeBonheur Healthcare. He sees patients at University of Tennessee Methodist Physicians Surgical Oncology.
