Chemotherapy, also called chemo, is a type of cancer treatment that uses drugs to destroy cancer cells. This type of treatment works by stopping or slowing the growth of cancer cells, which grow and divide quickly. It is administered throughout a series of treatment sessions, and a complete series of sessions is called a chemotherapy course. Your AdventHealth Infusion Center Calhoun team of highly skilled and specialized medical oncologist, oncology nurses, and pharmacy staff will work together to formulate the most effective treatment plan for chemotherapy.
Intravenous Iron Supplementation
Iron is a mineral in the human body and one component of hemoglobin, the substance in red blood cells that helps blood transport oxygen throughout the body. Iron deficiencies can lead to anemia.
Intravenous iron supplementation is useful to patients who cannot take oral iron supplements, which may include the following:
