Electroconvulsive Therapy

The Electroconvulsive Therapy Program (ECT) at Shawnee Mission Medical Center provides an alternative and effective treatment option for individuals suffering from depression, bipolar and other psychiatric disorders.  

ECT is a procedure performed by a specialized psychiatrist where an electrical impulse is used to stimulate the brain causing changes in brain chemistry while quickly reversing symptoms of certain mental illnesses.  Studies reveal that ECT is a highly therapeutic treatment option particularly for individuals that are not improving with medications and therapy alone.  Our ECT patients are thoroughly assessed for progress and medically monitored throughout the course of treatment.  On average, a patient will receive ECT treatments two to three times a week for a total of 10-12 treatments.  Additionally we offer ongoing maintenance treatments to help prevent a relapse of mental illness symptoms.  

The ECT team at Shawnee Mission Medical Center is composed of highly trained and compassionate staff members who have brought relief and lasting mental health recovery to many individuals for nearly 20 years.  Our ECT program is conveniently located on the Shawnee Mission Medical Center main campus.
