Infusion therapy is a safe, efficient and effective method for delivering chemotherapy fluids, as well as for the treatment of a wide range of medical conditions.


The Houston Methodist Cancer Center at Baytown provides private and semi-private infusion therapy suites that give patients the opportunity to receive treatments in a private setting or, if they prefer, in a more open space that allows them to converse with family or other patients.


“Infusion therapy is the gold standard for the delivery of chemotherapy, immunotherapy and other medications,” said Dr. Cesar De Las Casas, medical oncologist/hematologist at the Houston Methodist Cancer Center at Baytown. “It allows patients to undergo the treatments in a safe environment that is monitored by our specially trained infusion therapy clinicians. Our center allows patients to receive these essential therapies while staying close to home.”


Intravenous (IV) injection allows the body to quickly achieve blood concentrations of nutrients that are unobtainable through oral or even intramuscular injections.


“Patients with digestion issues caused by chronic conditions that prevent them from absorbing adequate amounts of nutrients can often be treated effectively through infusion therapy,” De Las Casas said.


In addition to treating cancer patients, the infusion center provides care for those with a variety of illnesses. Patients can receive IV medications for conditions, such as multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, psoriasis and Crohn’s disease.


The Houston Methodist Cancer Center at Baytown offers a full range of cancer treatment and support services. The center provides a multi-disciplinary team comprised of medical and radiation oncologists, surgeons and nurses, cancer-specific patient navigators, as well as social workers who help guide patients through the often confusing and intimidating cancer treatment landscape.


The cancer program specializes in treating some of the most common types of the disease, including breast, lung, prostate and colon cancers, using the most advanced techniques available. The care team provides services ranging from prevention and diagnosis to advanced treatments, survivorship and support groups.
