Our Brief History

The AMG Ketamine & Wellness Center is affiliated with Anesthesia Medical Group, the largest anesthesia group in the state of Tennessee and one of the largest in the United States.

We opened our center in order to safely provide higher dose ketamine infusions to better treat depression, PTSD, and Anxiety. We also treat a variety of pain conditions including chronic regional pain syndrome (CRPS, previously called RSD), fibromyalgia, migraine headaches, neuropathic pain, amputation pain syndrome, and others.

Our Promise

Board-certified anesthesiologists are physically present and will prescribe the optimal dose and frequency to achieve maximal benefit from treatment.

Our ability to co-administer propofol along with ketamine makes the patient’s experience more pleasant.

We maximize the use of continuous physiologic monitoring on all patients all the time.

We employ only highly trained RN’s with experience and training in conscious sedation and the use of ketamine.

We prescribe an individualized Wellness plan to maximize the likelihood of a positive response as well as improved function and quality of life on a long-term basis.

Patient Process

After consultation with an AMG Anesthesiologist, most patients are scheduled to receive an initial series of 4-6 infusions over a 2 to 3 week period.

We evaluate patients after three infusions — if no benefit is being achieved, the treatments are usually discontinued (there are some exceptions). Patients with depression are monitored both by their subjective symptoms as well as objectively by using the QIDS (Quick Inventory of Depression Symptomatology) scale.

Although a few patients do not require additional infusions after the initial series, most patients find they need additional “maintenance” or “booster” infusions as time passes. Patients generally determine the timing of additional infusions for themselves as judged by the return of their symptoms. Maintenance infusions are given over varying time periods ranging from once every 4 or 5 weeks to once every 6 months or more.
