Infusion therapy services involve administering medication through a needle or catheter. Doctors prescribe infusion therapy when a patient’s condition is so severe that it cannot be treated effectively by oral medications or a particular medicine has proven most effective being given intravenously. There are many diseases that may require infusion therapy. Among those are infections that are unresponsive to oral antibiotics, cancer and cancer-related pain, dehydration, gastrointestinal diseases or disorders that prevent normal functioning of the gastrointestinal system, and many more. Conditions treated with specialty infusion therapies may include cancers, congestive heart failure, Crohn's Disease, hemophilia, immune deficiencies, multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis and others.
