Integrity Ketamine Scottsdale is just one of the clinics in the Integrity Pain & Wellness network offering ketamine therapy to the state of Arizona. Ketamine is a highly-regarded anesthetic. It has been in use for decades in emergency surgery situations as it affects the body more subtly and safely than other anesthetics. Since the early 2000s ketamine has shown significant positive results as an alternative medication for people living with treatment-resistant pain and mood disorders. While mainstream medications are effective for the majority of people living with difficult to manage conditions, some find little or no relief. Integrity Ketamine Scottsdale offer a solution that is fast-acting and long-lasting.
Clinic founder Dr. Amit M. Patel, MD, places importance on information and understanding when approaching each of his patients. Ketamine is a revolutionary medicine, and Dr. Patel ensures that “patients and their families…are educated on the procedures”. Dr. Patel’s ethos carries over to the wide range of doctors, nurses, technicians, and administrators who make up the staff of Integrity Ketamine. Sufferers in the Scottsdale area who have lost hope and energy waiting for change will find a potential path to relief and regrowth with ketamine therapy at Integrity Ketamine Scottsdale.
Before undergoing ketamine infusion at the clinic, a thorough review of your medical history determines if ketamine is an appropriate course of treatment. A sub-anesthetic dose of ketamine is administered over the course of about an hour. This slow infusion creates a “signaling pathway” in the brain that allows for the growth of new neural pathways that avoid areas damaged by pain and trauma.
Studies out of Johns Hopkins and Stanford University show ketamine “to be extremely effective in treating…symptoms in patients who have not previously responded to traditional antidepressant medications”. About 30% of people do not see a significant decrease in symptoms from mainstream medications. Ketamine at Integrity Ketamine Scottsdale is a safe and effective alternative.
