What is infectious disease?

Infectious diseases can be caused by a wide range of microscopic organisms – including bacteria, fungi, viruses or parasites – and may spread from person to person, through food and water sources or be transmitted by insects and animals. In some cases, these infections can lead to serious illness.

Our expert Infectious Disease Team focuses on identifying and treating the source of infection to improve the health of patients, protect the community and make a difference in the lives of those we serve.


Who is affected by infectious diseases?

Infectious diseases can affect anyone, regardless of age, gender, race, sexual orientation and ethnicity.

You may be at an increased risk for certain types of infection if you are:

  • Immunocompromised (I.E. transplant recipients, patients undergoing chemotherapy treatment and those with HIV)
  • Recovering from surgery or have recently received an implanted medical device
  • Traveling to areas where certain infections are common
  • Taking steroids or other medications that suppress the immune system
  • Diagnosed with cancer, diabetes, venous insufficiency or other conditions that may delay healing
  • Experiencing additional conditions, such as advanced age or malnutrition

Commonly Treated Conditions

Viral infections occur when viruses enter the body and use the cells to replicate. Viruses are not the same as bacterial infections and require different methods of treatment and management. Commonly treated viral infections include:

      • Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)
      • HIV Preventative Treatment (PREP)
      • Hepatitis C
      • Hepatitis B
      • Mononucleosis
      • Shingles
      • Viral meningitis
      • Viral pneumonia
      • West Nile virus
      • Zika virus
      • Herpes simplex virus (HSV)
      • Influenza

 

Bacterial infections occur when harmful types of bacteria enter the body and reproduce. Antibiotics, which kill or stop the replication of bacteria, are the first line of defense – but some infections are more complicated. Commonly treated bacterial infections include:

      • MRSA
      • Cellulitis
      • C-Diff, including fecal transplant treatment
      • Tuberculosis
      • Non-tuberculosis mycobacterial infection (MAC)
      • Bacterial meningitis
      • Bacterial pneumonia
      • Osteomyelitis (bone infections)
      • Tetanus
      • Gangrene
      • Pertussis
      • Acute lyme disease
      • Leptospirosis
      • Urinary tract infections (UTI with resistant bacteria)
      • Sexually transmitted infections
      • Wound infections, including diabetic foot infections and more. Learn more about FMC’s Wound Clinic.

Managing Liver Disease with Advanced Technology

FHP Infectious Disease is now offering FibroScan® technology to patients. This non-invasive device assists in the management of liver disease, including Hepatitis C, NASH (fatty liver disease) and more. You may benefit from this technology if you have experienced abnormal liver function testing, diabetes mellitus, NASH, hepatitis B, hepatitis C or chronic abdominal pain.

FibroScan® has been shown to offer comparable results to liver biopsy, but is non-invasive, less expensive, painless and no preparation is required. Results will be returned quickly and the test is covered by most insurance.
