Holy Name Medical Center is happy to announce that we have begun our return to normal operations. You may wonder, Is the hospital safe? Yes. We are ready. Ready to partner with you and your family on all your healthcare needs.

Holy Name is the first hospital in North Jersey to complete a rigorous, deep cleaning of our 450,000 square feet of clinical and non-clinical space. We started with manual disinfection, then applied electrostatic sanitizing mist, and finally, blasted UV-C light to kill more than 30 types of pathogens — including Covid-19.

Treatment

Treatment for appendix cancer will depend on several factors, including the type of tumor, where it is in the appendix, if it has spread and the patients' overall health.

  • Surgery – this is used most often in appendix cancer. The tumor and some surrounding healthy tissue is removed. Often, appendix cancer is slow–growing and may be successfully treated with surgery alone. When the cancer has spread, cytoreductive (tumor debulking) may be used to remove parts of the intestine, gallbladder, ovaries, uterus and lining of the abdominal cavity.
  • Chemotherapy may be used in combination with surgery. Hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy (HIPEC), also known as heated chemotherapy or a chemo bath, is a procedure involving filling the abdominal cavity with a chemotherapy drug for about 90 minutes. It is used when the cancer has spread outside the appendix.
