The term “Infusion” or “infusion therapy” refers to the administration of medications directly into the vein of a person. This service is also called intravenous or IV therapy. Intravenous, infusion, or injectable methods of administering medication are generally used if oral/pill medications are unavailable, inappropriate, or insufficient. Many of the latest medications are biologic (made or derived from living cells) and cannot be consumed orally, like a pill, as they are no longer effective once exposed to the gastrointestinal tract. Biologic medications are often used to address inflammatory bowel diseases, such as Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis among other autoimmune disorders. If you or a loved one are seeking IV therapy in New Orleans, LA, request an appointment at a Metropolitan Gastroenterology Associates location in your area.
