Infusion therapy (also called intravenous or IV therapy) is provided at the University Hospital Simmons Cancer Center Infusion Services Clinic as a part of a patient’s treatment plan or to counteract the side effects of treatment.
Depending on the type of treatment required, you may need to visit the clinic for a single treatment or for multiple treatments over time.
