Ketamine Infusion Therapy: A New Frontier in Treating Mood Disorders

By: Dr. David Lee


In the evolving field of mental health treatments, ketamine infusion therapy stands out as a groundbreaking option, particularly for individuals grappling with anxiety, PTSD, depression, and other mood disorders. At Wave Pain Specialists, we are at the forefront of administering this innovative treatment, backed by our team of board-certified anesthesiologists, Dr. John and David Lee.

What is Ketamine?

Ketamine, originally an anesthetic, has emerged as a vital player in mood disorder treatment. Its ability to interact with NMDA receptors in the brain sets it apart from traditional antidepressants that target the serotonin system, paving the way for a new approach in mood regulation and pain management.

Understanding Ketamine Infusion Therapy

Ketamine infusion therapy at Wave Pain Specialists involves a controlled and safe administration of ketamine through an IV, under the watchful eye of our expert anesthesiologists. Together, they have a combined decade of experience with safely administering IV Ketamine. This method allows for precision in dosing and offers immediate effects, making it a powerful option for those who haven't found relief through conventional treatments.

For Depression and Mood Disorders

At Wave Pain Specialists, we recognize the urgency in treating debilitating mood disorders. Ketamine's rapid action in fostering neuroplasticity — the growth of new neural pathways — helps in recalibrating the brain's mood regulation mechanisms. Patients often experience significant improvements in their symptoms, sometimes as quickly as within a few hours to days after treatment.

Safe and Effective Treatment

Safety and efficacy are the cornerstones of our approach at Wave Pain Specialists. Our board-certified anesthesiologists bring their extensive knowledge and experience to ensure each ketamine infusion session is conducted with the utmost care. Patients are monitored throughout the process in a comfortable and controlled environment, making the experience as safe and effective as possible.
