Onco-digestive surgeon specialized in peritoneal surface malignancies, Dr Képénékian is working in the unit held by Prof. Olivier Glehen in the Hôpital Lyon Sud (France). He is particularly interested in the management of rare peritoneal disease like peritoneal mesothelioma or pseudomyxoma peritonei, as much as secondary peritoneal metastases from colorectal, gastric and ovarian cancers. His research projects are focused on the optimization of curative-intent treatment strategies, combining basic sciences and clinical studies. The improvement of intraperitoneal treatments and perioperative management is central in his activity.
