Biologic therapy has become a major form of therapy for many diseases. Infusion services in our office are both convenient and comfortable setting for patients. Patients will have an intravenous line inserted to administer agents such as infliximab (Remicade™), vedolizumab (Entyvio™), and ustekinumab (Stelera™). Our registered nurses will monitor this process from start to finish.
Iron is essential for maintaining a healthy blood supply. Without adequate iron the body cannot maintain a normal hemoglobin. In some patients either due to side effects of oral iron or for other reasons oral replacement therapy of iron fails. Patients now have the option to restore their iron stores with two intravenous infusions. This has added another service available at Gastroenterology Associates of Southeast Missouri.
