Infusion Services and Chemotherapy drug mixing at Augusta Oncology

Non-Chemotherapy Infusion Services

Augusta Oncology and Aiken Oncology treat much more than just cancer.  In addition, we offer in-house infusion services for many medical conditions.

Your primary care physician or medical specialist might refer you to our clinic for outpatient infusion services.  These IV medications and injections enhance your recovery plan; meanwhile, your referring physician continues to oversee and direct your care.

Our highly-trained nursing staff provides expert care and keeps your doctor updated on all infusion treatments.

INFUSION SERVICES TREAT MANY CONDITIONS

Our practice offers a comprehensive range of IV treatments for many chronic and acute illnesses.  For example, our Infusion Service therapies can treat:

  • Anemia (IV Iron)
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Crohn’s disease
  • Ulcerative colitis
  • Lupus
  • Osteoporosis
  • Graves’ Ophthalmopathy
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Asthma

COMFORT

We recently renovated all of our locations (Wheeler Road in West Augusta, Downtown Augusta, and Aiken, SC) with your comfort in mind.   Our treatment rooms are large and well-lit with comfortable reclining chairs.

The medication prescribed determines your therapy’s length of time; however, most infusion therapies will take several hours. During your treatment, we’ll always go above and beyond to make your visit as quick yet comfortable as possible.

CONVENIENCE

Infusion services from Augusta Oncology means no stressful commutes or crowded parking decks.  All of our facilities are conveniently located and easily accessible with on-site parking.

In addition, we always strive to get you into our centers as quickly as possible.  In many cases, appointments can easily be scheduled in just a few days.

Above all, our team will do everything it takes to make your experience as pleasant as possible!

Chemotherapy Infusion Services

Chemotherapy is the treatment of cancer with drugs that can destroy cancer cells.  It’s given either through an IV infusion or by mouth.  Many chemo medications are too harsh to be taken orally; as a result they’re administered intravenously.

WHAT TYPE OF CHEMO WILL I RECEIVE?

It’s important to remember there is no “one size fits all” treatment with chemo. Every cancer is different just as every person is different.

Your oncologist creates your treatment regimen based on what’s determined to be the best treatment for your specific cancer.  Therefore, you can rest assured knowing it has been tailored to your body’s individual needs, making for the best possible treatment.
