What Infusion Services Can Be Administered?

Cochise Oncology offers a range of infusion services designed to improve your health and speed your recovery from various conditions. These include: 

Iron Infusion

If you have an iron deficiency or your physician has diagnosed you with anemia, you may require an iron infusion. This procedure helps to raise iron levels faster than traditional dietary changes or supplementation. 

IV Antibiotics

In some cases, patients can experience complex bacterial infections that their bodies cannot eliminate without outside help. IV antibiotics can sometimes be more effective than ones you take orally because they bypass your gut and get into your system immediately. 

Hematologic Growth Factors

Patients with low red blood cell count can sometimes benefit from hematologic growth factor infusion. This procedure places naturally-occurring substances in the body that promote the production of red blood cells in the bone marrow, increasing blood cell count. 

Injectable Hormone Therapy

Injectable hormone therapy involves using compounds to adjust internal processes in the body, usually to treat disease. Stopping certain hormones, for instance, may slow or stop the growth of some cancers

Monoclonal Antibodies

Monoclonal antibodies are a type of antibody created in laboratories that assist the body’s immune system fight disease when re-injected. For cancer, these antibodies bind with receptors on the surface of tumors and, in some cases, deactivate them. 

Hydration Therapy

Hydration therapy is a type of treatment that involves injecting hydrating fluids and nutrients directly into the bloodstream, bypassing the stomach. It is ideal for severely dehydrated people or those with serious diarrhea.
