Ember Health Upper East Side is a ketamine therapy clinic that helps those with treatment-resistant depression overcome their symptoms. Many people with depression don’t respond to traditional forms of treatment, and that is where cutting-edge ketamine therapy comes in. It has proven to be effective in as many as 75 percent of people who try it.
Dr. Nico Grundmann and Tiffany Franke are the founders of Ember Health Upper East Side. They and their team understand just how difficult it can be to cope with depression, especially when treatment isn’t working. They develop patient-centered healing plans using ketamine to help as many people as they can regain control over their health and find new hope for healing.
Patients typically undergo a series of four hour-long infusions once referred to the Ember Health clinic and after ketamine infusion therapy has been determined to be a suitable treatment. Slight feelings of nausea or of dissociation from the body are common effects of the treatment. These effects are normal and fade soon after infusion ends. A trained anesthesiologist is on hand to monitor the treatment, and provide support and relief for any uncomfortable side effects.
For patients with depression for whom conventional treatments have been ineffective, ketamine therapy at Ember Health provides an alternative route to recovery. The treatment is for those who are currently undergoing treatment for a depressive condition, but for whom the medications associated with that treatment have provided less positive results than hoped for. The Ember Health team will work in conjunction with your primary care provider to being the road to recovery.
