Welcome to Interventional Psychiatry of Arizona
We are proud to offer evidenced based alternative treatments to target the biological components of your mental health.
rTMS, which stands for Repetitive Trancranial Magnetic Stimulation, is a non-invasive treatment for depression. TMS uses repetitive magnetic pulses delivered to the cerebral cortex to activate nerve cells in the brain. By applying treatment directly to specific regions of the brain associated with depression, it has been shown to provide significant relief in depressive symptoms. This treatment form does not involve any medications and you can return to your normal activities right after treatment.
This treatment is offered through our outpatient office utilizing the most advanced TMS system in the world. TMS involves treatment 5 days a week for 4-6 weeks.
When given effectively, intravenous Ketamine treatment can target symptoms of Depression, Anxiety, PTSD, Mood Disorders and Neuropathic Pain. It can improve mood and quality of life...often within hours of treatment.
This medication provides a novel approach to mental illness when other treatment forms have been unsuccessful. Initially used as an anesthetic as well as an analgesic, it has been found to provide rapid relief of depressive symptoms in as quickly as a few hours by impacting brain cells in different ways than conventional antidepressant medications.
This treatment is offered on an outpatient basis through our office. Ketamine involves an approximately 40-minute intravenous infusion with a series of treatments determined by your psychiatric need.
ECT is another form of neurostimulation used to treat various psychiatric disorders such as severe depression, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, and catatonia. Although it is very effective for treating other mental illnesses, it has been considered the gold standard in treating depression that has not resolved despite other treatment interventions. ECT is offered both in the inpatient setting as well as on an outpatient basis through Tempe St. Luke's Hospital.
ECT involves an initial 12 sessions, given three times a week for 4 weeks.
