Dr. George Salti, renowned cancer surgeon, joins Edward Cancer Center

NAPERVILLE, Ill., April 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- George Salti, MD, FACS, renowned surgical oncologist and Associate Professor of Surgery at the University of Illinois at Chicago, has joined the Edward Cancer Center.  Dr. Salti will serve as the Co-Medical Director of the Edward Cancer Center and Medical Director of the Edward Hospital Surgical Oncology Program. 

Dr. Salti uses advanced surgical techniques to treat melanoma, sarcoma, breast cancer, gastrointestinal and esophageal cancer, pancreatic cancer, hepatobiliary cancer and endocrine tumors.

In addition, Dr. Salti has developed a special interest in – and is one of only a few surgeons in Illinois and the country – treating late stage abdominal cancers with Hyperthermic Intraperitoneal Chemotherapy, also known as HIPEC.  Only 1,300-1,500 of the procedures are performed annually in the U.S.

HIPEC is done in conjunction with surgery to remove cancerous tumors.  With HIPEC, the abdominal cavity is bathed with a heated chemotherapy solution for 90 minutes to attack any remaining cancer cells.  According to Dr. Salti, HIPEC is most commonly applied to cancers of the appendix and colon, but also is used in some cases of ovarian, stomach and peritoneal cancers.

"HIPEC may provide relief of symptoms, and it has improved the survival rate for some cancers," says Dr. Salti.  "It doubles the survival rate for certain colon cancer patients compared to use of the latest standard chemotherapy.  And for patients with malignant growths known as pseudomyxoma peritonei, HIPEC can add up to 20 years to their life expectancy."

Dr. Salti was previously a surgical oncologist with University Surgical Consultants.  He earned his medical degree from the University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine, and completed his residency in General Surgery and fellowship training in Surgical Oncology at the University of Illinois at Chicago.

Dr. Salti is certified by the American Board of Surgery. He is a fellow of the American College of Surgeons and a member of the American Hepatobiliary Pancreatic Association, American Society of Breast Surgeons, American Society of Clinical Oncology, American Society of Peritoneal Surface Malignancy, Society for Melanoma Research, Society of American Gastrointestinal Endoscopic Surgeons and the Society of Surgical Oncology.

Edward's cancer care has earned Accreditation with Commendation from the Commission on Cancer of the American College of Surgeons and full accreditation from the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers; is recognized by the Quality Oncology Practice Initiative Certification Program – one of only 19 healthcare organizations in Illinois and one of only 176 in the country to be certified; and is designated a Breast Imaging Center of Excellence by American College of Radiology.

Edward Cancer Centers are located in Naperville, on the campus of Edward Hospital, 801 S. Washington St. and on the Edward Plainfield campus, 127th St. and Van Dyke Rd.  Both have a highly specialized medical team along with comprehensive, state-of-the-art outpatient medical and radiation oncology services, including the most sophisticated and precise radiation treatment options available to target and remove tumors, one of the most active clinical trials programs in the area outside of a university setting, the most active cancer research program in DuPage County and psychosocial programs to help cancer patients and their families throughout the west and southwest suburbs of Chicago.
