On certain occasions, electroconvulsive therapy is recommended. Electroconvulsive therapy is a hospital-based procedure to treat treatment-resistant depression and, in some cases, mania. ECT has been used for many years and its techniques have been refined. This is a complicated procedure that has been controversial over the years, but when the proper patient selection is made, it can be a live-saving treatment.
We have the following link to the American Psychiatric Association's statement about ECT, which addresses basic questions about this procedure. The Rochester Center for Behavioral Medicine works with Crittenton Hospital, Henry Ford Hospital, William Beaumont Hospital, and the University of Michigan Hospital for patients who require ECT. Dr. Young would be happy to answer more questions about ECT at your visit.
