In Office Infusion Therapy

Infusion therapy is a unique treatment method that delivers medication directly to damaged or diseased areas of the body for patients whose condition is so severe that it does not respond to oral administration. This type of treatment is often effective for patients with osteoporosis, rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis and more, and can help relieve pain, swelling, and stiffness in the joints and muscles.

Infusion therapy most commonly involves intravenous drug administration but may refer to intramuscular or epidural injections, depending on the type and severity of each patient’s individual condition. The solution administered during treatment may consist of nutrients, antibiotics, chemotherapy or other types of medication. Dr. Khan will customize your infusion therapy program based on your condition. Infusion treatments are provided in a comfortable room with the physician present to ensure safe and effective results.

In the past, patients undergoing infusion therapy were required to stay in an inpatient facility throughout the treatment process, making this treatment a costly and time-consuming endeavor. Now, patients can receive their infusion therapy in the office and avoid the need for an extended hospital stay. With our unique in-office program, patients are able to continue working and following their normal lifestyles while receiving the specialized care they need.
