About Appendix Cancer



Physicians and Facilities

For information about Physicians and Facilities outside of the USA and Canada please go to International Physicians and Facilities

Important-  These are physicians who to my knowledge treat appendiceal cancers and peritoneal surface malignancies.  This is not an endorsement of these physicians, but information provided so that you can contact and investigate these providers or facilities and make your own determinations for consultation or treatment. 

If you consult with any of these physicians based on the information you have obtained from my web site, please mention my name and make the physicians aware of where you received the contact information.  Many of these specialists have helped me immensely by answering questions I have posed to them, some have also provided me with their most current medical research studies.  I am very grateful to all of them for providing those of us diagnosed with appendiceal cancer treatment options that offer hope of surviving this disease.

Information sent to me by a Canadian that I am passing along in case it is useful: "For fellow Canadians diagnosed with these types of cancers, you will not likely find that the procedures are found locally, you will have to see doctors that you locate on your own. Just fill out OUT OF PROVINCE medical forms and the CANADA HEALTH ACT should cover all the necessary treatments, as you do not need special insurance.  The debulking and intraperitoneal chemotherapy was not covered by OHIP, but it was covered by the Canada Health Act."

Another Canadian passed on this link with information about treatment in the USA for those living in Ontario
