“Infusion” or “infusion therapy” is the administration of medications and/or fluids directly into the blood vessel of an individual. This service is additionally referred to as intravenous or IV therapy. Infusion, intravenous, or injectable ways of medication administration are usually used if oral/pill medications are inappropriate, insufficient, or unavailable. Several of the latest medications are biologic (made or derived from living cells) and cannot be ingested via the mouth, like a pill, as they are no longer effective following exposure to the gastrointestinal tract. Biologic medications are frequently used to treat inflammatory bowel diseases, which include ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease among other autoimmune disorders. To find a provider who offers IV therapy in San Antonio, TX, request a consultation at a San Antonio Gastroenterology Associates location near you.

I saw Dr Ayyar about 3 weeks ago. I was a new patient as my previous Dr. had retired. He is a wonderful doctor who took his time explaining everything to me. I feel blessed to have him as my new gastroenterologist. skp
