Ketamine Milwaukee is located in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and is the first clinic dedicated to ketamine therapy in Wisconsin. The clinic specializes in treating resistant psychiatric disorders, including Major Depressive Disorder, Bipolar Disorder, and Severe Postpartum Depression, amongst others.
According to research, seven in 10 Americans suffer from some sort of depression, and many of these cases are resistant to mainstream treatment. As a result, utilizing low-dose ketamine intravenous infusions, the staff at Ketamine Milwaukee offer an alternative to those whose psychiatric conditions have thus proven resistant.
In conjunction with psychiatric treatment, the infusions at Ketamine Milwaukee provide a safe and effective supplement on the path to healing.
The Ketamine Milwaukee clinic is run by Dr. Kevin Kane, “a physician anesthesiologist with over 20 years of experience.” This wealth of experience in the safe and effective use of sedatives, including ketamine, allows Dr. Kane and his team to provide relief and healing to those afflicted by difficult to treat mental conditions.
Patients at Ketamine Milwaukee experience comfortable settings, compassionate care, and, most importantly, effective medical treatment. As a result, in conjunction with psychiatric treatment, ketamine therapy has provided a profound “new treatment modality for addressing depression.”
The clinic also provides information on patient outcomes to those interested in the results Ketamine Milwaukee has seen with it’s treatments.
The staff at Ketamine Milwaukee will work with you to create a treatment plan that fits your particular health needs. To start, the clinic recommends a series of 6 treatments that will help to re-build and/or strengthen damaged connections in the brain. Patients are fitted with numerous monitors during the infusion process, ensuring that the procedure is safe and comfortable. Some patients report “enhanced sensations,” such as brighter lights or a sense of disconnection from the body. These effects wear of afterward, and staff continue to monitor patients for about 30 minutes after the end of treatment.
Ketamine infusion therapy shows positive change in many individuals suffering from unipolar or bipolar depression that has not been helped by two or more medications. Further, the treatment is also effective for PTSD. The clinic also considers cases of OCD (Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder) and Post-partum Depression on a case by case basis. While not a cure for depression, ketamine therapy is an effective part of a mental health plan. It provides a generally rapid decrease in suicidal thoughts and the ability to handle anxiety and stress.
