Our Vision: Healing psychiatric illness with novel mechanism therapeutics.

Brian Bayze, MD, Program Lead, CIPN

The Center for Interventional Psychiatry and Neurotherapeutics (CIPN) provides evidence-based, innovative, and patient-centered consultation, diagnostic services, and treatment for difficult-to-treat psychiatric illness. CIPN is a community leader in the study of patients with treatment-resistant conditions and the novel therapeutics targeting these diseases, with a particular focus on depression and other mood disorders.

Our multidisciplinary team works collaboratively with patients and their referring healthcare providers to clarify diagnoses and offer treatment recommendations. If a neurostimulation or novel mechanism antidepressant is indicated, we can provide Electroconvulsive Therapy (ECT), repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (rTMS), and intranasal esketamine (SPRAVATO®).

All patients must have their own psychiatrist or psychiatric nurse practitioner.

Please find details on the treatments provided at the CIPN here.
