RESTORE Infusion....The "Gold Standard"
in Ketamine-Based Therapy
It takes time...
We have spent the last 18 years studying and using ketamine in the successful treatment of many of the most difficult, complex and serious “treatment-resistant” conditions. After devoting almost 2 decades to the clinical use, research and development of this innovative therapy, employing precision medicine and targeted therapy, we have developed the most advanced ketamine based therapy available in the RESTORE Infusions.
We are committed to what we do. We will use all of our knowledge, experience, training and expertise to provide you with the best possible treatment available for relief. Helping people who suffer from migraines, fibromyalgia and depression is our mission. It can be very challenging and requires time, effort and expertise to achieve the best possible result. There are many factors to consider when approaching complex medical issues such as these and we look at each person as an individual.
The Ketamine Research Institute was founded to continually improve and perfect ketamine treatment for an expanding range of chronic illnesses. After devoting almost 2 decades to the clinical use, research and development of this innovative therapy, employing precision medicine and targeted therapy, we have developed the most advanced ketamine based therapy available in the RESTORE Infusions® We have improved on the original standard ketamine infusion, making the RESTORE Ultra-Rapid Infusion® the most effective, efficient and longest lasting treatment available.
We are a very specialized center devoted exclusively to ketamine treatment, clinical research, education and training physicians worldwide in the use of ketamine. We have developed the first and most comprehensive educational training program for physicians in the use of Ketamine Infusion Therapy for Mood Disorders. More than that, we have established an international multidisciplinary collaboration initiative with centers in Australia and Europe to share knowledge and expertise with physicians on the cutting-edge of ketamine therapy. Also, to ensure that all ketamine centers provide treatment in the most effective way and in a safe manner, the Ketamine Research Institute, in collaboration with our partners, has and developed the first International Standards for Ketamine Infusion Centers. Our goal is to ensure that you have the best possible opportunity to improve with ketamine infusion therapy.

A Little History About Ketamine...
The original ketamine infusion for the treatment of depression was first discovered in 2000 the Yale University School of Medicine by Robert Berman, MD and others. It was actually the Department of Anesthesiology, that assisted in formulating and administering the very first infusion protocol of “0.5 mg/kg given over 40 minutes” in 1994. This original protocol has since become the “standard” ketamine infusion and is currently being used by many others around the world as a rapid treatment for depression and other conditions.
During my time as an Assistant Professor at Yale in the Department of Anesthesiology and Director of the Pain Medicine Fellowship Program, I was also very involved in the early days of ketamine treatment using it to help patients find relief from chronic pain. Even before that, as far back as the mid 1990’s, I had been utilizing this amazing medication for the treatment of pain and later used it extensively at the Mount Sinai Medical Center in New York City for the same reasons prior to my position at Yale. Those of us with previous ketamine infusion experience knew that it was remarkably effective, not only for depression and pain, but it could be effective in treating many related disorders. The problem at that time was that no one knew the most effective dose or formulation of ketamine to use for any individual patient and secondly, that the very rapid beneficial effects only lasted a very short time. Usually only a few days to a few weeks following a single infusion. Well that was certainly good, and it worked even in those cases where nothing else did, but I knew it could be better with the development of RESTORE.
The Ketamine Research Institute was founded to expand and perfect ketamine infusion therapy. I have spent years improving on the original “standard” ketamine infusion protocol, treating hundreds of patients with some of the most severe and complex pain, depression and anxiety disorders imaginable. Now we have been able to solve many of the issues that faced us before with the RESTORE Ultra-Rapid Infusion -
the "Gold-Standard" in ketamine therapy
We Put The Pieces Together
Today, through our use of Precision Medicine and exploration of allied fields in medicine, neuroscience, pharmacogenomics and cognitive science, we have discovered and pioneered synergistic ways to enhance its effectiveness and extend the duration of the RESTORE Ultra-Rapid Infusion beyond anything currently reported in the medical literature.
Our research and development efforts have unlocked the keys to the most effective, rapid and long lasting treatment of pain and depression available today. This unique and proprietary ketamine based infusion protocol known as RESTORE represents the next generation of clinically proven rapid, effective, long-lasting and safe ketamine based infusion treatment.
Through our expanding research efforts to explore its broader application, RESTORE is also be the first medication/protocol of its kind to relieve symptoms of Fibromyalgia, Neuropathy, PTSD, migraine headache, as well as, many other serious conditions such as pelvic pain-vulvodynia-pudendal neuralgia.
We Work As A Team
This is a team effort and requires expertise from many related fields. To ensure our patients comprehensive care and treatment, the Ketamine Institute is now located on the campus of the Doctors Hospital of Sarasota and we in close association with some of the premier psychiatric and neuroscience teams in the region.
The majority of patients who come to use had close relationships with their local physicians and psychiatrists. However, there are times when additional help or consultation may be needed and beneficial.
To help our patients and provide the most comprehensive services available we have partnered with the best physicians and psychologists available.
There is only one center in the United States...RESTORE - the "Gold Standard"
We are proud to be the only center in the United States dedicated solely to the advancement of RESTORE Ultra-Rapid Infusion Therapy, provide education to other physicians in its use and to bring the latest breakthrough discoveries about ketamine out of the research lab and into our infusion centers to help the people who need it most today.
