At the Cleveland Clinic in Weston Hospital, patients suffering from treatment-resistant pain disorders can find relief from their symptoms through the use of ketamine therapy. The large health organization prides itself on offering patients the latest in cutting-edge healthcare in the country.
Ketamine infusion therapy at Cleveland Clinic is done by Dr. Juan Giraldo, who works out of the pain management department primarily at Weston Hospital. Ketamine therapy has been proven to be effective for up to 75 percent of people that undergo the treatment, and Dr. Giraldo aims to help as many patients as possible restore a good quality of life using the breakthrough treatments.
Ketamine therapy involves taking a sub-anesthetic dose of ketamine in a clinical, supervised setting. It is useful for treating both mood and chronic pain conditions.
When you undergo ketamine therapy, you can have a single infusion or multiple infusions. Many studies on ketamine treatment for depression find good results using a round of six infusions, and most ketamine clinics follow this protocol. You will receive ketamine at a clinic via either intravenous (IV) or intramuscular (IM) infusion, although the former is the most common route of administration. It is also possible to take ketamine orally or as a nasal spray, which you typically administer yourself outside of a clinical setting.
Ketamine infusions function as part of a treatment plan or as an alternative to unsuccessful treatments for those whose conventional therapies or medications have had little or no effect on mental and physical health conditions. By increasing glutamate production, and by “resetting” pain signal receptors, ketamine offers hope and health to those dealing with difficult to manage problems.
