Infusion Therapy - IV Infusion Therapy - AZ Cancer Center

What is IV Infusion Therapy and what is it used for

Did you know infusion therapy is also used to treat diseases other than cancer?

Though synonymous with chemotherapy, infusion therapy has proven to be effective and life-changing for patients with complex medical conditions.

Beyond cancer, patients undergo infusion therapy for one of many reasons. For some patients, certain medications cannot be taken orally because stomach acids will destroy them before they can attack the disease.

Infusion therapy is used to treat a multitude of serious or chronic conditions, such as:

  • Congenital diseases
  • Certain forms of arthritis
  • Immune deficiency disorders
  • Gastrointestinal tract diseases
  • Pain caused by cancer and other conditions
  • Dehydration due to nausea, diarrhea, or vomiting
  • Serious conditions like Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, multiple sclerosis, congestive heart failure, and more.

All infusions are administered in a safe and sterile environment under the direct supervision of our providers.
