What clinical team members are part of the Froedtert & MCW HIPEC team? (Ugwuji Maduekwe, MD)

Ugwuji Maduekwe, MD, surgical oncologist, describes the number or roles and team members who work together to treat your cancer. Dr. Maduekwe is part of the Froedtert & the Medical College of Wisconsin HIPEC team.

We take a holistic approach to our patients with peritoneal surface malignancies here. And so from that stance, we think that the HIPEC team is not just people involved directly in giving the HIPEC, but everyone involved in managing these diseases to make sure that you have the best outcome. With that approach, I believe the HIPEC team includes our group of surgical oncologists, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, our nutritionists, clinical psychologists, physical and medical rehabilitation team all working together to make sure patients get the best outcomes which results in improved life and improved quality of life.
