Infusion therapy is a procedure that delivers medications directly to the bloodstream with a needle or catheter, and is needed when a patient is unable to take a drug orally. It’s also used to deliver medications in larger or more controlled volumes, such as during chemotherapy for cancer, or delivering pain medication during childbirth.

Chronic conditions such as cancer, gastrointestinal diseases, autoimmune diseases, acute pain nutrient deficiencies, and dehydration can all be treated with infusion therapy. However, infusion therapy isn’t for everybody, including children under 12 years old, some older adults, patients with high blood pressure or cholesterol, and those with a history of heart problems.

Infusion therapy carries a handful of benefits, including fast-acting relief and accessibility for patients who cannot take oral medication.

Treatable Conditions:

  • Childbirth
  • Cancer pain
  • Dehydration
  • Autoimmune
  • Gastrointestinal
  • Nutrient Deficiencies
