A Brief History of Ketamine

Ketamine is an anesthetic that has been used on both humans and animals since the early 1960s.  Unlike other anesthetics, it doesn’t depress patients’ breathing or circulatory systems and it is very fast-acting.

Because of its effectiveness and safety when delivered appropriately, it is being used more in the treatment of depression and other mood disorders, and even some pain conditions including Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CPRS/RSD). Leading institutions such as Yale University, The National Institute of Mental Health, and Massachusetts General Hospital have completed research that demonstrates the efficacy of ketamine infusion treatments for these conditions.

About The Visit

After an initial consultation with our licensed medical staff, our physician will create a treatment plan and dosage fine-tuned to your medical history and health factors. During an infusion, a very small dose of the medicine is slowly administered intravenously over 40 minutes, usually in the arm or hand. Afterward, we'll briefly keep you for observation. Most patients can expect to be with us for about 90 minutes. Side effects are rare and mild, you should not experience residual side effects between treatments.​

"I can't thank Dr. Verdun enough. I have no words. I received ketamine treatment from Dr. Verdun for six sessions. By the fifth session, it was like night and day. I felt like I had woken up after a year of feeling so sunken and so low. For people who have treatment resistant depression, I highly recommend Freedom Ketamine Treatment." - Cameron M.
