Why consider interventional psychiatric care?

When you are suffering from a mental disorder that requires specialized care, particularly conditions that have been unresponsive to standard treatments, interventional psychiatric care can be your path to relief.

Interventional psychiatry, sometimes called neuromodulation, is a well-established specialty that adjusts and treats the faulty brain networks that cause the majority of mental illness. These treatments are used alongside medication and psychotherapy and have given relief to millions of patients.

If you suffer from depression, bipolar disorder, OCD, PTSD, ADHD or autism spectrum disorder and aren’t seeing improvements with standard treatments, you may benefit from the following interventional treatments.

Future Interventional Treatments

Vagus Nerve Stimulation (VNS)

An implantable vagus nerve stimulator is currently FDA-approved to treat epilepsy and depression. When activated, the device sends electrical signals along the left vagus nerve to your brainstem, which then sends signals to certain areas in your brain. New, noninvasive vagus nerve stimulation devices, which don't require surgical implantation, have been approved in Europe to treat epilepsy, depression and pain. A noninvasive device that stimulates the vagus nerve was recently approved by the Food and Drug Administration for the treatment of cluster headaches in the United States.

Genetic Testing for Depression

Genetic testing can be used to help narrow down your antidepressant options, ideally reducing the need for a trial-and-error period while finding the best antidepressant for you. Although these tests can’t tell you specifically which antidepressant would work best to treat your depression, they offer clues about how your body may respond.
