When you wake up with a hangover or if you struggle with chronic pain or nutritional deficiencies, sometimes all you want is for the pain to go away immediately. At Northwest Plastic Surgery Associates in Missoula, MT, we offer IV therapy to do just this. Patients can receive high-level supplements intravenously, bypassing the slow action of the digestive tract to provide the nutrients you need directly to the bloodstream. To ensure your safety during these procedures, we have a registered nurse (RN) on staff with experience from the intensive care unit to pediatric departments.
Vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants are essential to a healthy body. They provide our cells with key ingredients needed to promote regeneration, detoxification, and other vital processes. This is needed even more when you are sick. Although these vitamins and minerals can be ingested orally, they enter the body much faster when administered intravenously and provide immediate results.
This 30-minute, minimally invasive, nonsurgical treatment is recommended both for those with chronic health issues, such as migraines or nutritional deficiencies, or for those who simply need a quick and powerful hangover cure.
Dr. Hardy has RNs on staff with intensive care unit experience who are responsible for administering the IV therapy treatments. Before administering anything, our team of highly trained medical professionals will thoroughly review your medical history to ensure the correct treatment is chosen for you. The treatments and IV vitamin cocktails vary based on the results you would like to see. Patients can receive the benefits of treatment without worrying about the reliability of the team.

IV therapy can help you get back to your best self, especially after feeling tired, stressed, overworked, or from drinking too much alcohol the night before. We can customize concentrated IV solution drips to replace any lost nutrients and vitamins quickly and effectively. Our different therapies are tailored to meet your exact needs. After undergoing IV therapy, most patients feel energized for days with the effects increasing over time.

Migraines, fibromyalgia, and chronic fatigue syndrome are all debilitating health conditions that can have a negative effect on your quality of life. Fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue, in particular, can leave a person dehydrated and low in vitamin C and magnesium.
Our personalized IV therapies give patients a boost of hydration and nutrients directly into the bloodstream to battle severe fatigue, weakness, body aches, and pains. For patients whose migraines disrupt their everyday life, we offer IV therapy with selected B vitamins, other migraine disruptors, and in some cases pain and anti-nausea medications to combat your symptoms and help get you back to an active lifestyle.
Your initial appointment with Dr. Hardy and his team will start with a general health assessment, including a discussion of any medical allergies you may have. In some cases, we may perform a few exams to evaluate your vitamin levels and ensure you are a good candidate for IV therapy. If you suffer from congestive heart failure, this treatment is not recommended.
