Dr. Reichbach has worked with ketamine for more than two decades in general anesthesiology. He became an advocate of intravenous (IV) ketamine infusions after observing the relief patients experienced with treatments and reviewing the growing body of research over the past decade supporting its efficiency. These ongoing studies and successful results have inspired Dr. Reichbach to utilize ketamine as a viable and effective treatment for severe depression and neuropathic pain disorders.
