Ketamine Infusions

Ketamine infusion therapy has become a popular alternative therapy for chronic pain and depression.  Ketamine is a dissociative anesthetic used to induce pain relief and unconsciousness in general anesthesia.  When used in low dose infusions, it does not induce unconsciousness but has been found to improve chronic pain conditions.

Ketamine Infusion therapy for depression must be recommended and requested by a patient's psychiatrist.  We are happy to administer the treatments, but we require ongoing assessment by the psychiatrist throughout the therapy to monitor the patient's response

At IPS, an anesthesiologist will always be present and supervise therapy.  An experienced RN will administer and personally monitor you throughout the treatment.  You will be treated in a private low lit room in a comfortable reclining chair with a relaxing ambience including music.  

The number and frequency of infusions will be customized to fit your particular condition and needs.  Infusions will be administered over a 1-2 hour period.  Doses will be escalated as needed on subsequent visits.



Unfortunately, insurance rarely covers Ketamine infusion therapy.  We know these out-of-pocket expenses can be financially challenging.  We try to keep our costs to a minimum.  Average cost per session is $500.
