If you’re in need of infusion therapy, the hospital is not your only option. Get access to first-rate infusion therapy by visiting our infusion center at Cochise Oncology in Sierra Vista, Arizona.
Infusion therapy is the general term for the administration of medication through a catheter or needle. Though these services are most commonly delivered intravenously, infusion therapy can also include intramuscular injections or epidural routes.
Cochise Oncology is pleased to accommodate the community’s need for an infusion center. We have delivered IV chemotherapy and IV infusions for hematological problems for our own patients for years, and now provide infusions services for patients of other physicians in the community. These services are similar to those provided by the hospital in the past.
Cochise Oncology offers the following infusion services in their infusion center:
Iron Infusion: Iron infusion is an intravenous procedure that delivers iron supplementation to help patients manage their anemia or iron deficiencies. It produces a quicker response than alternative methods like dietary changes or iron supplement pills, which makes it a particularly useful anemia treatment for more severe cases of the condition.
IV Antibiotics: If you experience a bacterial infection, broad-spectrum antibiotics are often the most suitable solution at your disposal. They bypass gut absorption, entering straight into the bloodstream instead to deliver a faster and more manageable way to restore your health to its best.
Hematologic Growth Factors: Hematopoietic growth factors are naturally-occurring substances that facilitate and regulate the production of new blood cells by the bone marrow. When the body’s ability to naturally make blood cells, which leaves you with immature cells, lab-produced Hematopoietic cells can be used to increase the blood cell count.
Injectable Hormone Therapy: Hormonal therapy focuses on the idea of using medicines to add, block, or remove the naturally-occurring chemicals to help treat the disease. This can happen by stopping the hormones from helping cancer cells grow, or by preventing the production of the hormones in the testicles or ovaries.
Monoclonal Antibodies: Monoclonal antibodies essentially substitute antibodies that are created in laboratories with the aim of supplementing the body’s natural immune system. They come in the form of drugs and medications that bind with antigens found in cancerous cells rather than healthy cells before subsequently attracting antibodies to fight the problematic cells.
Hydration Therapy: IV hydration therapy, also known as intravenous hydration therapy, is a process in which nutrients and hydrating fluids are administered directly into the bloodstream for instant absorption. It is the fastest way to deliver nutrients to the body while also boosting the absorption rate from under 50% to over 90%.
New patients will need to be seen once by our Medical Director, who will oversee the infusions ordered by the referring physicians in our community.
