Fargo man receives groundbreaking procedure at MeritCare

By

The first sign that something was awry with John Jambois’ abdomen was a hernia that popped one day while he was jogging. A few weeks later his surgeon came back with bad news: Testing and diagnostic surgery determined he had cancer in the lining of his abdomen…

 

His first treatment for the abdominal cancer, involving surgery and traditional chemotherapy, was at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn. Although the surgery was successful, Jambois was warned the cancer could return…

 

This time, last May, Jambois had a procedure called hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy, or HIPEC, by Dr. Robert Sticca, a cancer surgeon at Fargo MeritCare… A CAT scan at the Mayo Clinic recently determined that Jambois remains cancer free.
