Dr. Julia Aharonov is helping patients, with Ketamine infusions
Board certified by the American Board of Anesthesiology and a member of the American Society of Anesthesiologists, the Michigan Society of Anesthesiologists, and the American Society of Ketamine Physicians, Dr. Julia Aharonov has been using Ketamine in her practice for nearly twenty years.
Dr. Aharonov has been using Ketamine with great success in patients with long standing severe medical issues. She has received rave reviews from nearly all.
Scientists and doctors have begun studying the use of Ketamine as an antidepressant. Dr. Aharonov and her team have been on the cutting edge of this revolution.
Ketamine is a powerful hypnotic agent if used in large doses, but in any dose, it is a deeply profound analgesic. According to the latest research, Ketamine is thought to act by blocking NMDA receptors in the central nervous system which interact with amino acid glutamate. The subsequent chemical changes caused by Ketamine act long after the drug has been eliminated from the body. For nearly a decade, ketamine has been shown by many scientific studies to be effective in the treatment of severe depression, chronic pain, fibromyalgia, PTSD and other difficult to treat conditions.
Patients looking for help treating their depression, chronic pain and other aliments using Ketamine, have found Dr. Aharonov to be extremely compassionate and skilled. All IV Ketamine infusions are supervised by Dr. Aharonov, and only take a few hours. Ketamine has no addictive properties.
Ketamine treatment offers a number of benefits for individuals dealing with severe depression or chronic pain. Used responsibly, Ketamine can help people to recover from painful procedures such as surgery without the need for addictive pain relievers such as opioids.
Dr. Aharonov has been an anesthesiologist for over twenty years in general, trauma, orthopedic, vascular, thoracic, obstetric, plastic, ocular and outpatient anesthesia. Since 2007 she has been extensively involved in addiction medicine, but has recently become passionate about using Ketamine to treat severe depression that is not responsive to traditional treatment as well as chronic pain.
Dr. Aharonov received her Doctorate in Medicine from the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey School of Osteopathic Medicine. She then went on to complete her Anesthesia Residency at the University of Michigan and St. Joseph’s Hospital & Medical Center. Dr. Aharonov is one of Michigan’s Top-Doctors in Hour. She currently oversees the Ketamine Institute of Michigan, which is located at 461 W. Huron St., Pontiac, MI 48341.
