It is now widely reported that rates of depression in the USA are increasing, and the social isolation imposed during the pandemic only served to exacerbate the issue. Following in-depth research and formal training, Interventional Orthopedics of Washington has launched ketamine therapy as a powerful and effective alternative treatment.

Ketamine is approved by the FDA as a general anesthetic, owing to its sedative and pain elimination properties. However, as studies conducted by the Mayo Clinic have shown, low-dose Ketamine therapy can also have rapid-acting antidepressant properties and provide pain relief.

Indeed, Interventional Orthopedics of Washington states that pain and depression can be interlinked, with one often contributing to the other. Given its ability to address both factors, the clinic’s recent introduction of ketamine therapy is expected to greatly improve the quality of life for clients.

Patients who may benefit from the new approach include those who suffer from chronic pain and/or mental health concerns that are resistant to other forms of treatment. Disorders that the program can assist with include depression, anxiety, PTSD, and chronic pain.

About Interventional Orthopedics of Washington

Led by Dr. Otono Silva, MD, Interventional Orthopedics of Washington uses evidence-based approaches to help treat pain while reducing the use of anti-inflammatory medications, opiate medicines, and cortisone injections. The practice investigates causal factors that lead to joint degeneration and pain and formulates personalized treatment plans.

One local physician recently stated: “I am also a local physician that offers regenerative injection therapies in the area. Dr. Silva is an amazing doc that I refer to for all things related to the spine, which is an area I do not treat. I also refer to him for second opinions when I have a complicated hip, knee, ankle, or shoulder case. I also brought my own mother to him after she had complications from a knee replacement.”
