Specialty Infusion Therapy

Texas Oncology is offering a new service at select locations: specialty infusion therapies for patients with chronic diseases or conditions. Infusion therapy is a treatment in which medication is administered to a patient intravenously as an alternative to oral medication. Because many medications delivered by infusion therapy are similar to oncology drugs in their specifications and side effect profiles, Texas Oncology is able to provide this unique service.
