About Specialized Infusions

Mission

 
Specialized Infusions offers an alternative treatment option to patients where other treatments for depression have failed. We offer safe and comfortable ketamine infusions monitored by board certified nurse anesthesia providers.

Why?

 
It is estimated that 16.2 million Americans currently suffer from depression. Over five million of those Americans experience Treatment Resistant Depression, or TRD, and continue to suffer from the effects of this illness. With the help of ketamine infusions, approximately 70% of TRD patients experience significant relief when used in conjunction with other therapies.

Why Specialized Infusions?

 
Like so many, Dallas has seen the crippling effects of depression and the devastating impact this illness has on those suffering from it’s grip. Upon learning of the success of ketamine infusions to treat depression, Dallas began researching this novel form of treatment further and grew more interested with each discovery that he made. Before long, Dallas was convinced that he could put to use his years of experience administering anesthesia and provide those not responding to other medications with this promising alternative. Dallas is eager to offer his skills and expertise in the administration of anesthesia to help provide relief to those in need.
