Stefany D. Wolfsohn, MD
Dr. Stefany Wolfsohn is a board-certified Anesthesiologist and a lifelong resident of Ventura County. In September 2017, Dr. Wolfsohn founded the Ventura Center for Advanced Therapeutics where she has been able to offer her extensive experience, a compassionate bedside manner and an integrative approach to help patients who suffer from treatment-resistant mental health disorders, PTSD and chronic pain syndromes.
She is committed to providing the highest quality of care to her patients and has been a trusted resource for anesthesia services by local doctors and surgeons in the area since 2007.
She has worked across a broad spectrum of settings, including both in-hospital and outpatient surgery centers. A Diplomate of the American Board of Anesthesiology, Dr. Wolfsohn has over a decade of experience providing anesthesia services and perioperative care to patients in large interventional pain practice. In this setting, she has specialized in treatment-resistant chronic pain syndromes. She has administered ketamine to thousands of patients for mental health and/or chronic pain conditions since 2007.
She is a member of the American Society of Ketamine Physicians, Psychotherapists, and Practitioners which is dedicated to the safe clinical use of ketamine for mental health disorders and pain conditions. Dr. Wolfsohn has been safely administering ketamine for treatment-resistant conditions since 2007 and has a special interest in non-opioid based interventions due to the opioid crisis that has rapidly unfolded in the US since the late 1990s.
Her interest in treating pain and other chronic conditions without the use of opioids has put her at the forefront in the development of safe and effective protocols using ketamine.
Dr. Wolfsohn was featured in the Thousand Oaks Acorn in July 2019 in the Health Section: Former ‘club drug’ now being used to treat pain, depression: Local doctor among those who believe in ketamine’s healing powers.
