Sharp Mesa Vista Hospital
Restore your optimal mental health.
If you have been suffering from acute mental health issues and haven't responded to medications or cannot tolerate their side effects, you may benefit from the reliable symptom relief that electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) can provide. An exceptionally effective medical treatment, ECT helps 90 percent of participating patients.
How it works.
To undergo ECT treatment, you are given muscle relaxants and oxygen and are gently put to sleep under general anesthesia. The treatment itself involves brief electrical stimulation to the scalp. Following treatment, you will most likely need to take antidepressant medications for a period of time in order to maintain the positive effects of ECT.
At Sharp Mesa Vista, ECT is performed by an experienced treatment team of doctors, nurses and nursing assistants. Our goal is to do everything we can to restore your optimal mental health.
