What is infusion therapy?
Infusion therapy happens when medications or fluids are administered directly into a person's vein. It is also called intravenous or IV infusion therapy. Intravenous, infusion, or injectable drug delivery methods are often utilized if oral/pill medications are unavailable, insufficient, or inappropriate.
Several of the newest medications are biologic (made or derived from living cells) and cannot be taken via the mouth, like a pill, as they are no longer effective after exposure to the GI tract. Biologic medications are prescribed to address IBD (inflammatory bowel diseases), such as Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis, among other autoimmune conditions. If you or a loved one are seeking IV therapy in Denver, CO, request a consultation at your community's Denver Digestive Health Specialists location.

My visit with Dr. Siegel was very pleased. I see the doctor again on November 1 2023. I am very happy he is my doctor. Mary F. Dockter
My appointment with Dr. Polson was a follow-up appointment. It went well and Dr. Polson addressed all of my concerns.
Had my 45 year old screening colonoscopy. Everyone at the endoscopy center was friendly, the check in staff, preop and post nurses, and Dr Fishman and the anesthesiologist were great. Everything was on time and efficient. Highly recommend.
Wonderful care and informative
Staff was courteous and accommodating. Doctor Siegal was insightful and down to earth. Advised me about the procedure and general gastrointestinal knowledge. Thanks to you all.
