Infusion therapy is the delivery of medication through a catheter intravenously for the treatment of rheumatic and autoimmune diseases, and may be used when appropriate to help prevent joint damage and the progression of diseases. There are several intravenous medications that are FDA approved for the treatment of autoimmune diseases.
The use of these medications through infusion therapy have been successful in preventing joint deformities and improving overall outcomes in patients for autoimmune diseases, such as the following:
- Rheumatoid arthritis
- Psoriatic arthritis
- Systemic lupus erythematosus
- Ankylosing spondylitis
Therefore, we provide in-house infusion therapy for our patients when the administration of oral medications is ineffective in treating their condition. Our skilled medical staff directly administer the infusions on-site and monitor our patients in a safe and comfortable environment.
