AxonKlinikken, practice & precision

Axonklinikken is the first clinic in Norway dedicated solely to providing ketamine treatment. The physicians of Axonklinikken are all spesialists in Emergency Medicine. Emergency physicians and anesthesiologists are considered the experts in the use of ketamine. However emergency physicians have the additional expertise in the daily medical management of serious psychiatric disorders.
