Dedicated Infusion Facilities for Patients with Rheumatic Conditions

The treatment of rheumatic diseases has advanced rapidly in the past decade with the availability of more than a dozen new treatments for rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, myositis, lupus and osteoporosis.  Biologic therapies are new class of drugs that have been used since 1998.  A “biologic” drug copies the effects of substances naturally made by your body's immune system.   

An increasing number of these specialized therapies are given an IV (intravenous) (infusion) here at our infusion center. These treatments usually take 1-5 hours, during which time the patient can comfortably rest, read, watch TV or do office work without discomfort.  We provide free wi-fi for your convenience.

Receiving your biologic infusion at the West Michigan Rheumatology has lower costs than hospital based centers and allows closer supervision of your therapy by our clinical team.
