Remicade® (Infliximab) is the latest medication to help treat Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis. Administered as an IV infusion, it has proven very effective at directly suppressing inflammation in the gut. Remicade acts by blocking a protein in your body that leads to inflammatory bowel disease and the painful symptoms experienced with Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis. Results are apparent in as little as six treatment sessions a year after three starter doses. Treatment is administered by intravenous (IV) infusion over a two-hour period overseen by a healthcare provider. Patients may occasionally need additional medication before starting Remicade to prevent or reduce potential side effects of administration. If you have inflammatory bowel disease in Phoenix, AZ, then this treatment option could be beneficial to you. Contact Arizona Digestive Health to learn more from our providers.

The care was great. The only comment that I have is the wait for the doctor to release me was quite long. Otherwise, it was good.
