If you suffer from Chronic Pain, with or without depression, Serenity Ketamine Center is here to help regain control of your life. Dr. Gharakhani has 23 years of experience with patients with chronic pain and depression.
There are many types of chronic pain syndromes that often coexist and are quite difficult to manage with typical treatment regimens. We believe Ketamine represents a new hope for those suffering from chronic pain. Ketamine can often enhance current treatments plans, potentially allowing for a reduction of some portions of a current treatment regimen.
Ketamine and its metabolites have been shown to have unique and diverse effects, binding to multiple receptors in the central nervous system, inhibiting some and activating others. Symptomatic relief is achieved often within a few hours after an infusion. Ongoing relief and control is often sustained for many weeks. Ketamine reduces pain by modifying the neural pathways associated with pain signaling.
Approximately 70- 75% of patients will have a substantial improvement in their chronic pain symptoms. If you also have Major Depressive Disorder, these symptoms are very likely to improve as well. We work closely will all referring physicians to facilitate communication with the goal of significantly reducing your pain, and transitioning you to maintenance therapy for sustained relief.
Following the completion of the initial induction series, we will follow your progress and formulate a customized maintenance therapy to optimize your control of your pain and your life.
If chronic pain is controlling your life, you now have the opportunity to regain control. Take the next step towards the new and much happier life you deserve by scheduling a consultation with Dr. Gharakhani to determine if you are a candidate. We will work in concert with your regular physician to ensure you have the best chance of success with Ketamine therapy.
