The Center for Pain Management Lafayette provides ketamine infusion services to people with treatment-resistant pain disorders. Breakthrough ketamine treatments have shown to be effective for treatment-resistant conditions and the medical center helps people overcome their symptoms one infusion at a time. Conditions they treat include fibromyalgia, migraines, and complex regional pain syndrome.
The clinic’s highly trained staff understand just how debilitating chronic pain can be. Their main goal is to help patients heal in a lasting way so they can regain control over their health.
The Center for Pain Management Lafayette was founded by Dr. Edward Kowlowitz, who is board-certified in anesthesiology and pain management. His main goal is to help people by combining cutting-edge science and traditional forms of pain relief to provide lasting results.
During an infusion procedure, patients may receive lidocaine or ketamine, along with other medications. The procedure may last for a few hours, and the pain-relieving effects can continue for several weeks. After an infusion, patients may feel groggy for several hours, so they will need someone to drive them home from their appointment.
Ketamine infusion treatment may help patients who want to reduce their use of opioid medications. This procedure may not be appropriate for patients who have high blood pressure, heart arrhythmias, or other conditions. Center for Pain Management may recommend other treatments – such as a spinal cord stimulator implant – for patients who are not ideal candidates for infusion treatment.
