Infusion Suite Q&A

What is an infusion?

Physicians have been providing medication and other critical treatments with infusions since the mid-1950s. Infusions deliver medicine directly into your bloodstream, which optimizes absorption and bypasses the digestive process. 

Integrated Neurology Services has a state-of-the-art infusion suite at each of their three locations. The team offers infusions of:

  • Intravenous immunoglobulin (IVIg)
  • Rituxan®
  • Remicade®
  • Reclast®
  • Ocrevus®
  • Solu-Medrol®
  • Soliris®
  • Steroids
  • Iron

The medical team coordinates care with doctors and pharmacies, performs pre-authorizations, and completes any other necessary steps to get you the treatment you need. They also offer evening and weekend hours for your convenience. 

What conditions benefit from infusion therapy?

The team of board-certified neurologists prescribes infusion treatments for conditions, including:

  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Neuropathy
  • Chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy
  • Guillain-Barre syndrome
  • Migraines and chronic headaches
  • Osteoporosis 
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Lupus
  • Inflammatory bowel disease
  • Crohn’s disease
  • Colitis 

Infusion therapy is helpful for a wide range of treatments, including inflammatory diseases that can interfere with the way you absorb medicine and nutrients in your digestive tract. 

What happens during an infusion treatment?

Infusion therapy should be a relaxing treatment. Your doctor gives you instructions on how to prepare, based on your needs and medication. In general, wear comfortable clothing, and make sure to drink plenty of water during the 24 hours prior to your infusion. 

When you arrive at Integrated Neurology Services, a member of the team takes you to the infusion suite and helps you get comfortable with blankets and pillows. They clean the skin on the inside of your arm and insert your IV. 

Then you relax as you receive your infusion. You can watch television, read, or even nap. 

How do I know if infusion therapy is right for me?

The team at Integrated Neurology Services is highly trained and experienced. They don’t prescribe any treatment without a thorough exam. Your doctor explains your treatment options and why they think infusion therapy is the best choice. They answer your questions so that you can make an informed choice about your health care. 

If you’re curious about the treatment you can receive in the infusion suite, call Integrated Neurology Services, or make an appointment online to find out if infusion therapy is right for you.
