West Virginia University's Cancer Institute is well-known for its treatment and innovation. Leading the institute is Dr. Richard Goldberg, who has not only established himself as a transformative leader but also a potent researcher and educator.
Brian Boone, M.D., surgical oncologist in the WVU Medicine Department of Surgery and WVU Cancer Institute, performed the state’s first hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy (HIPEC) infusion. This treatment delivers heated, sterilized chemotherapy to the abdomen as a treatment for cancer that has spread to the lining of the abdominal cavity, or peritoneum.
WVU Medicine Obstetrics and Gynecology has experienced remarkable growth over the last two years. By increasing its team of gynecologic oncologists and adding a nurse practitioner, physician assistant, and genetic counselor, the department has expanded its capability to serve gynecologic cancer patients.
