Boise Ketamine Institute provides Ketamine Infusion Therapy by an experienced team of physician anesthesiologists and nurse anesthetists in a safe and caring environment. Ketamine has proven to be a safe and reliable anesthetic agent, and now has been shown to have a positive benefit in up to 70% of cases in the treatment of chronic intractable depression, even for those who have received little to no benefit from other treatments, including electroconvulsive therapy - ECT. Ketamine has also been shown to benefit those with PTSD, bipolar disorder, post-partum depression, severe anxiety, OCD, and chronic pain. If you know of someone who suffers from one of these disorders, we may be able to help.
The majority of early Ketamine treatment research has focused on Major Depression and Treatment Resistant Depression (TRD). These studies show that 64-79% of depressed patients respond positively to ketamine infusion therapy. Some of the best results are seen with acutely suicidal patients who have experienced immediate reversal of their symptoms within hours. Not all patients will see a response. Boise Ketamine Institute will evaluate you and discuss how we can optimize your prospects for successful treatment.
OCD is characterized by unreasonable thoughts and fears (obsessions) that lead to repetitive behaviors (compulsions).
Research now shows that Ketamine can achieve a rapid reduction in symptoms for those suffering with PTSD. Let our knowledgeable physicians lead you through your therapeutic journey.
Also known as manic depression, these patients have both episodes of depression and mania. Ketamine treats the depressive episodes (not mania).
Fibromyalgia is a complex syndrome characterized by widespread muscle and joint pain and fatigue. Patients commonly suffer from anxiety and depression.
Anesthesiologists have over 20 years experience giving Ketamine to combat chronic pain. These treatments are of longer duration and a higher dose than those for mood disorders.
Many patients with anxiety disorders also suffer from depression. Anxiety and depression are believed to stem from the same biological vulnerability.
