10th International Congress on Peritoneal Surface Malignancies

11/17/2016 - 11/19/2016

In the past decade, the treatment of peritoneal metastases has gained interest from oncologic communities around the world.

Today, if a patient with peritoneal metastases is provided with proper treatment, the survival increases to an average of several years and improved outcomes are reported every day. The 2016 PSOGI congress’s mission is to provide clinical and scientific information on peritoneal surface malignancies and to create awareness regarding innovative treatments that will improve the quality of life for patients. The target audience includes healthcare practitioners in the field of…
