MINNEAPOLIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Advanced Brain + Body Clinic (AB+BC) is a new interventional psychiatric clinic offering ketamine and esketamine (Spravato) therapy, Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS), and integrative medicine. After opening just four months ago in Minnetonka, MN, Advanced Brain + Body Clinic is already set to double in size, expanding to a second office this month to accommodate the high demand for holistic psychiatric care and hard to find treatment options.
“Ketamine, Spravato and TMS offer unique mechanisms of action to treat depression, anxiety, PTSD and suicidal thoughts,” said Dr. Brian Johns, Co-Owner of AB+BC. These cutting-edge therapeutics are very well tolerated and highly effective. They should be available to everyone in need, especially considering the worsening mental health crisis of isolation and anxiety during the ongoing pandemic.”
Dr. Johns attributes the high demand for AB+BC’s services to the clinic’s commitment to work with most insurance providers. While many other clinics charge patients directly for their ketamine, esketamine, and TMS treatments, AB+BC’s goal is to make mental healthcare affordable and available to all.
Ketamine is just one of the many tools that AB+BC uses to help patients suffering with treatment resistant depression (TRD), PTSD and anxiety. Studies show that at least 30% of people with depression have TRD, which is defined by failing two antidepressant medications at adequate dosage and duration. And, once a patient has tried a fourth antidepressant without relief, they only have a 5% chance of success on their 5th antidepressant. Luckily, with the help of TRD specialists, patients have new options with much higher success rate:
- Option 1: Ketamine which has a 70% response rate. (Response is defined as a 50% reduction in depressive symptoms.)
- Option 2: TMS which has helped 40-45% of patients go into complete remission.
“Having struggled trying medication after medication, it’s no surprise that many patients with TRD, PTSD and anxiety are ready to try something new,” said Dr. BethAnn Frazier. “This is where AB+BC can help. Not only do we offer these innovative treatment methods, but our team of mental health professionals takes a holistic approach to health and wellness, and offers psychiatric medication management.”
Dr. Johns and Dr. Frazier use genetic testing and laboratory blood analysis to tailor each patient’s treatment regimen to maximize overall brain and body health. By understanding a patient’s hormones, inflammation markers, minerals and more, the team at AB+BC can optimize each patient’s response to their treatment.
Advanced Brain + Body Clinic opened its second office yesterday at Ridgedale Office Center, 13911 Ridgedale Dr., Ste. 110, Minnetonka, MN. Virtual and in-office appointments can be scheduled today by calling 612-682-4912 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
