Ketamine Therapy
in Columbus, OH

Your Trusted Partner in Ketamine Therapy: Endocrinology Associates

Our team is known to successfully handle the difficult cases others have been unable to solve. Ketamine treatment is highly effective at handling depression, anxiety, and trauma-related mental health disorders, but implementation can be tricky.

Thanks to the expert guidance of Dr. Christofides and the expert nurse practitioners she has carefully vetted and trained, we have a thorough understanding of not just your condition, but how that condition affects the rest of the body. We will work with your mental health team to ensure you have access to revolutionary options to solve the unique puzzle that is your body.

Understanding Ketamine Therapy: What You Need to Know

Ketamine was originally created to be an anesthetic, and the mental health community discovered its potential to treat conditions like depression, PTSD, and anxiety. Most antidepressants work by increasing serotonin or noradrenaline, which most often functions as a temporary band-aid. By contrast, ketamine has been shown to increase the brain’s neuroplasticity — in other words, ketamine can make it easier to form new neural connections. It “rewires” the areas of the brain that have been impaired by stress and depression, offering a solution that gets closer to the root cause of your condition.

The Mental Health Benefits of Ketamine Therapy

Ketamine is known for reducing or eliminating symptoms for a range of mental health conditions, including depression, anxiety, PTSD, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and more. In addition to treating these disorders, ketamine offers some more pointed benefits:

  • Fast symptom relief. Symptoms recede faster than traditional antidepressants, which often require a lengthy onboarding process.
  • Psychological healing. Impaired neuroplasticity is considered by most mental health experts to be closely linked to depressive symptoms.
  • Enhanced quality of life. Patients often report improved mood, increased motivation, and a renewed sense of hope.
  • Mental breakthroughs. Administered in small doses, ketamine can produce mild dissociative effects that contribute to shifts in attitude and profound mental breakthroughs.
  • Minimal side effects. Used properly, ketamine has minor, short-term side effects — and rarer known long-term side effects.

Am I A Candidate for Ketamine Therapy?

Ideal candidates are those looking for better solutions to help manage depression, anxiety, or PTSD, among other conditions. Ketamine treatment can be especially useful if traditional therapies have not helped. Book your appointment today — we hear you, we see you, and we are here to help.

What To Expect from Ketamine Treatment?

Under the expert guidance of Dr. Elena Christofides, you will undergo an initial evaluation — which can be done remotely with our telehealth options — to assess your condition and individual needs, so we can create a treatment plan customized just for you. If you are a good candidate, your ketamine treatment will take place in a calm, supportive, and private environment, where the treatment will be administered over the course of a few hours.

On the day of your treatment, our compassionate and well-trained nurse practitioners oversee your prep, ensure your comfort, and monitory your progress every step of the way, taking the extra time necessary to guarantee you have everything you need; we respect what ketamine therapy can do, and refuse to leave any risk or negative side effect to chance. We perform the injections for you, so you can have maximum comfort and relaxation during your session. Your safety and comfort come first, which is why we provide the most tightly controlled environment and best-trained ketamine treatment monitors in the area.

Ketamine treatment does cause some mild dissociative effects, so we require that patients arrange an alternate ride home. Afterward, our experienced team will assess your response to the therapy, making any necessary adjustments to ensure the most effective path forward.
