Neurosurgery for metastatic pancreatic cancer to the brain
Sometimes, pancreatic cancer becomes advanced and metastasizes (spreads) to other areas of the body, such as the nervous system. Our Neurosurgery Program offers advanced treatments and procedures for metastatic brain and spinal cancers.
We also help you manage the unique challenges associated with neurological cancers, including mobility and communication difficulties. Our neurosurgery team will work closely with the other members of your care team to help alleviate pain and help you maintain your mobility so you are better able to follow your treatment regimen. Your care team will also offer other essential components of care, including nutritional, physical and emotional support.
Our neurosurgery team
For patients with metastatic cancer to the brain, it’s important to be seen by an multidisciplinary team of physicians with expertise in performing cancer-related surgical procedures on the nervous system and its supporting structures.
At Cancer Treatment Centers of America® (CTCA), our expert neurosurgeons work together with the rest of your care team to understand your individual needs and provide advanced, personalized treatments. Dr. Clinton Baird is the Director of Neurosurgery at our Tulsa hospital, and Dr. Juan Alzate is a neurosurgeon at our Chicago-area hospital.
