Direct Chemotherapy Infusion for Pancreatic Cancer
Chemotherapy can play a vital role in treatment of pancreatic cancer. Dr. Alden and his colleagues can determine the best options for using chemotherapy, radiation and other effective pancreatic cancer treatments. Some patients may receive neoadjuvant chemo, which is used before surgery to reduce the size of tumors. Others may undergo direct chemotherapy infusion after surgery or for advanced pancreatic cancer that cannot be completely removed with surgical procedures.
