When You Run Out of Options
When a patient is unable to take medication orally, when an oral medication is not available, or when a specific form of therapy cannot be administered by mouth, Infusion Therapy may be the only option.
In Infusion Therapy, medication or nutrition is administered through a needle or a catheter.
Infusion Therapy treatment in a hospital can be prohibitively expensive and patients can be at heightened risk of infection. Digestive Healthcare Center (DHC) provides safe and personalized care, and is able to reduce costs, save time, and increase patient satisfaction by performing the procedure in-house.
Conditions Treated With Infusion Therapy
- Inflammatory Bowel Diseases
- Crohn’s Disease
- Ulcerative Colitis
Our care team is comprised of a physician, a nurse practitioner or physician assistant, as well as an infusion nurse who is specialized in intravenous treatments. Our entire team provides an ongoing assessment and evaluation of your treatment and will answer all your questions and address any concerns.
At present, DHC performs Infusion Therapy for Inflammatory Bowel Syndrome using the medications Remicade, Entyvio and Cimzia. The treatment is also used for regular fluid infusions, since most patients suffering from the condition tend to become dehydrated.
