ELECTROCONVULSIVE THERAPY (ECT)
Electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) is a safe and effective treatment option for individuals who have not responded to other forms of treatment for severe depression, bipolar disorder, or other mental health conditions. At Serene Hospital, we offer ECT as a treatment option for eligible patients.
Our ECT program is led by a team of experienced mental health professionals who specialize in administering ECT and providing ongoing support and care to our patients. We utilize state-of-the-art equipment and follow the latest guidelines and protocols to ensure that our patients receive safe and effective treatment.
ECT is a minimally invasive procedure that involves applying a small electrical current to the brain while the patient is under anesthesia. The electrical current triggers a brief seizure in the brain, which can help alleviate symptoms of severe depression, bipolar disorder, and other mental health conditions.
At Serene Hospital, we take a personalized approach to ECT, working with our patients to develop an individualized treatment plan that takes into account their unique needs and circumstances. We provide ongoing support and care throughout the entire ECT process, from the initial consultation to post-treatment follow-up.
We understand that ECT can be a daunting prospect for some individuals, which is why we strive to create a supportive and comfortable environment for our patients. Our team of mental health professionals is dedicated to ensuring that our patients feel informed, supported, and empowered throughout the entire ECT process.
If you or a loved one is struggling with severe depression, bipolar disorder, or another mental health condition, ECT may be a viable treatment option. Contact us today to learn more about our ECT program and to schedule a consultation with one of our mental health experts.
