What is infusion therapy?
“Infusion” or “infusion therapy” includes the delivery of medications directly into the vein of an individual. This service is also called intravenous or IV administration. Infusion, intravenous, or injectable methods of medication delivery are often used when pill/oral medications are unavailable, insufficient, or inappropriate. A number of the latest medications are derived or made from living cells (biologic) and cannot be consumed orally, like a pill, because they lose their effectiveness once exposed to the GI system. Biologic medications are commonly used to treat inflammatory bowel diseases, such as Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis along with other autoimmune disorders. If you or a loved one are seeking IV therapy in Hattiesburg, MS, request a consultation at a Hattiesburg GI Associates, PLLC location in your community.
