What is biologic infusion?

Intravenous infusions and therapeutic injections work with the body’s immune system to target inflammation in your digestive tract. They have been proven to maintain remission, and reduce or completely eliminate symptoms. Please ask one of our physicians or physician assistants about this treatment, if you have been diagnosed with Crohn’s or Ulcerative Colitis. We can discuss treatment options that best suit your individual needs.
