Altasano Infusion Center in West Dundee, Illinois logo

Founded in 2018, the Altasano Infusion Center in West Dundee, Illinois offers ketamine therapy as one facet of a treatment plan that recognizes the fundamental connections between the health of the body and the health of the mind.

The clinic offers intravenous ketamine infusions to treat a variety of mental health conditions in order to restore a sense of balance to both emotional and physical well-being. Ketamine has been in use as an anesthetic for 50 years, and in that time physicians have noted the positive effect it also has on mental health issues.

Driven by leading-edge research, the Altasano Infusion Center provides access to a medication that has restored hope and health to thousands of sufferers across the United States.

The Altasano Infusion Center’s founder, Deena Schwartz, CRNA,  has been providing office-based anesthesia for 20 years, and brings a wealth of education and knowledge to the team at the clinic.

The practice at Altasano Infusion Center pairs “traditional medical paradigms” with an acknowledgment of the important links between physical health and mental health. Inspired by her own experiences, Ms. Schwartz sought to bring health-conscious medical treatments to those with difficult to manage mental health conditions.

Sufferers in the West Dundee area will find a safe and effective treatment in ketamine infusion therapy.

Your Treatment: What to Expect

Initial phone and office consultations will establish the suitability of ketamine at the Altasano Infusion Center, as well as the treatment plan moving forward.

On the day of your infusion, you will receive one on one care from a highly qualified professional. Patients should allow themselves two hours for each ketamine infusion.

Some patients report sensations of separation from the body, or a change in perceptions. These are normal effects, and are monitored by a nurse throughout to ensure the patient’s comfort.

Who is this treatment for?

Recent research into ketamine has shown that low-dose infusions can have significant positive impacts on the sometimes-severe symptoms of treatment resistant mental health conditions.

For those who have not benefited significantly from traditional oral medications, the combined body-mind approach at Altasano Infusion Center offers an alternative medication that can be a powerful supplement to traditional psychiatric therapies.
