Ketamine Infusions

A Breakthrough for a Variety of Conditions

Named one of the top 10 medical breakthroughs in 2017 by the renowned Cleveland Clinic. Dr. Rubin is now offering low-dose Ketamine infusion therapy for qualifying patients, in his recently opened Infusion Wellness Center right here on Long Island.

What is Ketamine?

Ketamine is a medicine traditionally used as an anesthesia. It also happens to stimulate neuron growth and is a strong anti-inflammatory. Furthermore, when used in small doses monitored by a physician, it has been proven to help treat patients suffering from severe depression.

Low Dose Ketamine (LDK) has also been proven to help patients suffering from Chronic Pain, Fibromyalgia, Complex Regional Pain Syndrome, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, Chronic Migraines as well as PTSD. Ketamine when used in small doses, is extremely unlikely to be addictive, unlike many opioids and other prescribed medications.

How does Ketamine therapy work for pain management?

Ketamine infusion therapy is a new and promising way to help manage pain, and it works in a few special ways:

Blocks Pain Signals: Imagine pain signals as trains traveling to your brain. Ketamine acts like a barrier, stopping these trains in their tracks, which helps reduce the feeling of pain.

Helps Brain Adapt: Ketamine encourages your brain to adapt and change, which can help lessen chronic pain over time.

Fast Relief: One of the great things about ketamine is that it can start working quickly, often bringing relief soon after treatment starts.

Given in Small Amounts: Ketamine is used in much smaller doses than what is used in surgeries, which makes it safer and reduces the risk of strong side effects.

Long-lasting Effects: For some people, ketamine can provide long-term relief from pain, which is especially helpful for those who have been dealing with pain for a long time.

Ketamine therapy is especially useful for people who haven’t found relief from other pain treatments, offering a new ray of hope in pain management.

Ketamine has been shown to deliver relief for a variety of symptoms.

Ketamine Infusions for Depression:

  • When used to treat severe depression, Ketamine Infusions usually work within a matter of days. Usually, after just 1 or 2 infusions patients see improvement in their mood and concentration.
  • Treatment is indicated for patients that have tried and failed two oral anti depressant medications.
  • Oral antidepressants tend to take many weeks to start working. Ketamine tends to have an effect much sooner than oral medications.
  • This therapy is shown to help patients with Severe or Chronic Depression, Bi-Polar Disorder, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), Post-Partum Depression (PPD) and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).

Ketamine Infusions for Chronic Pain:

  • Can help patients with Chronic Pain, Fibromyalgia, Complex Regional Pain Syndrome, Chronic Migraines and Neuropathic Pain.
  • Has ben shown to work with as little as 1 to 2 infusions, where Opioids can take up to weeks or months before a patient feels relief.
  • Ketamine is unlikely to be addictive when given in small doses. Opioids have been shown to be highly dependent.
  • Your body is unlikely to build up a tolerance to the low dose ketamine infusions. Patients can build up a tolerance to opioids.

  • The first step is to set up an office appointment to start the screening process.
  • Infusions are done in our Infusion Therapy Center in Garden City. (see map below for directions.)
