What is IV infusion therapy?
IV infusion, also referred to as infusion therapy, is a method of administering medications to individuals directly through an intravenous (IV) injection. Infusion therapy is usually considered when other forms of delivery are not an option or simply fail to produce the required results. A lot of modern biologic drugs are produced from living cells, meaning they would lose effectiveness if introduced through the patient's digestive system. In these cases, infusion therapy might be an alternative. Biologic medicines are commonly applied to help treat ulcerative colitis, Crohn's disease, and other inflammatory bowel disorders and autoimmune ailments.

Dr. Gutta, his nurse, Mary, and the rest of the staff at TDDC have been great every time I’ve spoken to or seen them throughout my several visits with them this year. I’ve recommended their office to a couple of patients at my workplace, an infusion therapy center, and will recommend them to errrbody in the future! Thanks Dr. Gutta, Mary, and all of TDDC ☺️
