... Do the calculations differently.
It is difficult to be more specific when you have not said what kind of calculation you are doing. Generally speaking, look for nanmean() and nansum() and nanstd()

What kind of calculations are you doing?
For basic operations such as sum, mean, std, max, median etc., you can use the 'nan' variant of those functions: nansum, nanmean, nanstd, nanmax, nanmedian. These variants basically discard ignore nan values when performing calculations.
