Welcome to Interpersonal Advanced Treatment
Kansas City's Top Rated Ketamine Treatment Center
What Is Ketamine?
Ketamine in an anesthetic developed in the early 1960’s. It is one of the most widely used drugs in modern medicine, and is on the World Health Organization’s List of Essential Medicines. It has a variety of medical uses and is FDA-approved as an anesthetic.
Ketamine has a remarkably safe track record in surgical settings and is frequently used in pediatric surgery. It is also commonly used to treat the extreme physical pain of a condition called CRPS/RSD. The U.S. military has used ketamine as a battlefield anesthetic since the Vietnam War. Ketamine is also used in veterinary medicine.
Ketamine has been found to be effective in treating many conditions as a surgical anesthetic, and has only been approved by the FDA to be marketed as such. Ketamine’s use outside of that as an anesthetic is considered “off label.” It is estimated that almost 1/4 of all prescription medications sold in the United States are prescribed off label. In the U.S., ketamine is listed as a DEA Schedule III drug.
How Does Ketamine Therapy Work?
IAT performs Ketamine Infusion Therapy in an outpatient office setting. Patients are comfortably seated in reclining chairs or hospital beds. Micro-dose ketamine infusion is typically complete in 45 minutes but, infusions may last up to four (4) hours dependent on the condition for which ketamine is a treatment aspect. During the active phase of infusion, patients may listen to music, or simply rest. Patients should expect to experience dissociation which is best described as an altered state. Patients should expect to recover in 30 minutes or less. Should a longer recovery time be required, patients will be moved by practitioners from the treatment room to a designated recovery room.
Patients are encouraged to bring a trusted friend or loved one (who may stay with them throughout the entire procedure) particularly for the first infusion. After infusion patients will need to be driven home by a trusted friend or loved one, and may not drive, conduct business, or return to work until the next day.
Dr. Soni and his staff are wonderful, attentive and truly care for their patients. My experience was excellent; the treatment was more beneficial than I dared hope. I highly recommend Dr. Soni.
