Ketamine Therapy Services

Ketamine is an essential medicine used for anesthesia and analgesia (pain relief) in adults and children, having been listed on the World Health Organization’s Essential Medicines List since 1985. Ketamine is safer to administer than other types of anesthetic and pain relief agents as it does not cause respiratory depression or hypotension.

Both of these are common side effects of anesthesia and pain killers. Numerous controlled studies conducted by industry, academia and the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) have shown ketamine infusions to produce rapid and robust responses in patients suffering from Major Depressive Disorder, who have otherwise been unresponsive to conventional methods of treatment.

Because Ketamine has been shown to work within a matter of hours or days, there is no more waiting 6-8 weeks as with most antidepressants and other psychoactive drugs to see if they are effective.

Our experienced and caring medical practitioners at Infuzed will provide Ketamine therapy in micro-anesthetic doses to patients with a medical referral to help relieve treatment resistant depression, bi-polar depression, PTSD, obsessive compulsive disorder, anxiety, postpartum depression, migraines and chronic pain.

The benefits of infusion may last anywhere from 2 weeks to 3 months. Though not originally approved for these conditions by the FDA, Ketamine has a SAFE OFF-LABEL use of this medication as we administer it under a controlled setting with a physician, anesthesia provider or nurse practitioner continually monitoring you.

“Recent data suggest that Ketamine, given intravenously, may be the most important breakthrough in antidepressant treatment in decades.”

– Thomas Insel MD, director of National Institute of Mental Health

We have developed protocols that will give you the best chance of success. We begin with research-backed protocols and make adjustments based on the latest science while focusing on individual patient needs.

Pain and mental health infusions follow different protocols at our office.

Mental Health

Our standard protocol consists of a six infusion stabilization series, typically administered over a 12-14 day period. Infusions last 40 to 60 minutes with the total appointment time being around 90 minutes. In some cases, we will recommend extended infusions. For our patients who travel from out of town, we can condense the initial six treatments into a 6-8 day time span with the same high success rate as our standard series. 

Follow up is an important part of our system. We plan a schedule of “maintenance” infusions and follow up appointments to maintain the gains you have made and continue to walk with you on your wellness journey. The next treatment phase occurs approximately one month after the Stabilization Period treatments and repeats every 4-8 weeks. The maintenance schedule varies based on the patient’s needs with the goal of progressing into longer intervals between treatments.

Pain

Pain infusions are typically longer and at a higher dose of ketamine. Our beginning pain series consists of four-hour long infusions over four consecutive days. This reduces pain by up to 50% for the majority of our patients. Single booster infusions are usually scheduled at four and eight weeks. Relief usually lasts 3-6 months.

Occasionally, we will recommend additional infusions if we feel that more progress can be made. We continue to follow up with you and work with your pain management team when appropriate. We’re here for you for the long term and commit to doing our part to keep your pain well managed and your quality of life high.

Forget everything you’ve known about pain management. Our treatments and our team will show you a new level of success and caring.
