Patients know they can trust the physicians at UPMC with their lives. Our expertise offers numerous benefits, including:

  • Specialized care. At UPMC Hillman Cancer Center, we have a specialty care clinic designated for patients with peritoneal metastases, with inpatient and outpatient care paths available, depending on a patient’s diagnosis.
