People living with various chronic pain and mood disorders can find relief from their symptoms at Genesys Infusion Center. The medical center provides ketamine infusion therapy services to help people regain control of their health and get their lives back. Conditions they treat include depression, post-traumatic stress disorder, and chronic pain.
Genesys Infusion Center is led by board-certified registered nurse anesthesiologist Janet Albertson. She has over two decades of experience in anesthesiology and hopes to transfer her skills to make a difference in the lives of those with mental health issues. She works alongside Dr. Benjamin Taimoorazy, a board-certified pain management specialist. The two are proud to offer the only outpatient ketamine services in downstate Illinois.
Before recommending ketamine treatments, an expert team member at Genesys Infusion Center will assess an individual’s suitability for ketamine therapy. Infusions take place in a comfortable environment and last for about 45 minutes. Some patients report out-of-body sensations or mild hallucinations, but these side effects disappear soon after the infusion ends. Throughout the process, patients are monitored by one of the clinic’s highly-trained staff.
Those who have not been helped by conventional treatment strategies have another option with ketamine treatments at Genesys Infusion Center. Research in the last 7-10 years has shown that ketamine infusions are effective for those suffering from treatment-resistant mental health conditions and chronic pain conditions. Either as an alternative to or a supplement to mainstream treatments, ketamine infusions offer an alternative path to healing for those who have lost hope.
