"Infusion" or "infusion therapy" refers to administering medications and/or fluids directly into a person's vein. It is also known as intravenous or IV infusion. Infusion, intravenous, or injectable methods of medication delivery are generally used when oral/pill medications are insufficient, unavailable, or inappropriate. Many of the newest medications are derived or made from living cells (biologic), which cannot be taken orally, like a pill, because they are no longer effective once exposed to the gastrointestinal system. Biologic medications are often used to treat inflammatory bowel diseases, such as Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis, along with other autoimmune disorders. To find a provider who offers infusion therapy in St. Louis, MO, request a consultation at a local Specialists in Gastroenterology in your community.

Dr. Singh tried very hard to get an appointment open for me to to the severity of pain I was experiencing. I was exceptionally happy with her and the office staff. I’d recommend Dr. Singh to my friends & family.
