PHILADELPHIA, PA – 12/12/2016 (PRESS RELEASE JET) — Ketamine Treatment Centers, the premier ketamine infusion practice for mood, anxiety, and pain disorders, opened its 7th center nationwide on September 19th in Bryn Mawr, PA.
Ketamine is a medicine developed more than 50 years ago for anesthesia during surgery, and has been used for that purpose since that time in children, adults, and animals. More recently, ketamine has been found to be a valuable and highly effective treatment for depression, anxiety, PTSD, OCD, and certain pain disorders such as fibromyalgia and CRPS. Unlike most commonly prescribed oral anti-depressant medications that take weeks to months before the patient and practitioner can even decide if the treatment is working, ketamine infusions have a greater than 70% success rate with improvement noted in hours to days. In fact, most patients will know after their 1st infusion whether or not they respond (>70% of patients will respond and have benefit), and these are patients that have often failed 2 or more trials of medications and/or ECT/TMS. In addition, the side effect profiles for commonly prescribed oral anti-depressant medications are extensive and sometimes life threatening. Far and away the most common experience with ketamine infusions is to have no side effects in between treatments.
Ketamine Treatment Centers was founded in 2011 by Dr. Steven P. Levine, a board-certified psychiatrist. Dr. Levine has pioneered a protocol for the clinical use of ketamine infusions to treat severe depression and anxiety disorders. He has directly supervised many thousands of infusions, and has helped establish similar programs across the country and around the world.
Ketamine has the potential to help the majority of patients achieve significant relief within hours of a first treatment. In a recent interview with the Washington Post, Dr. Levine described the experience of a ketamine treatment, “[It] seems to leave something indelible behind,” he says, “People use remarkably similar language to describe their experience: ‘a sense of connection to other people,’ ‘a greater sense of connection to the universe’.”
Dr. Levine has partnered with Dr. Anand Dugar, a board-certified anesthesiologist, combining the expertise of psychiatry and anesthesia to provide unrivaled, world-class care for the treatment of major depression, bipolar depression, postpartum depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), fibromyalgia, CRPS, and other pain syndromes. The office in Bryn Mawr, PA is one of seven offices open nationwide. Other open offices are in Princeton, NJ, Denver, CO, Baltimore, MD, Raleigh, NC, West Palm Beach, FL, Potomac, MD and Alexandria, VA. New offices in Fairfax, VA, Chicago, IL, New York, NY, and White Plains, NY, are scheduled to open in the next few months.
