New Ketamine, TMS and Integrative Medicine Clinic’s Rapid Expansion
Due to high demand and positive patient results, Advanced Brain + Body Clinic expands
Minneapolis, MN August 17, 2021
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 their holistic psychiatric care and hard to find treatment options.
“Ketamine, Spravato and TMS therapy offer unique mechanisms of action to treat depression, anxiety, PTSD and suicidal thoughts. 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, Co-Owner of AB+BC
One of the likely reasons that there is such a high demand for AB+BC’s services is that they 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. Patients may choose to continue trying traditional antidepressant medications after failing two antidepressant medications, however, once a patient has tried a fourth 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: Try Ketamine which has a 70% response rate. (Response is defined as a 50% reduction in depressive symptoms.)
- Option 2: Try 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. This is where AB+BC can help. Not only do they offer these innovative treatment methods, but they are a team of mental health professionals that take a holistic approach to health and wellness, and offer 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 with Dr. Brian Johns today by calling 612-682-4912 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
