TMS STANDS FOR TRANSCRANIAL MAGNETIC STIMULATION
TMS therapy for depression uses gentle magnetic pulses to stimulate the areas of the brain that are responsible for mood control. This therapy helps treat patients with Major Depressive Disorder (MDD), Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), and anxiety, especially if medications haven’t helped. TMS is non-invasive, FDA approved and drug free. The average treatment session takes less than 19 minutes, during which patients can relax. Patients can get back to what’s most important immediately after treatment.
TMS THERAPY IS SAFE AND EFFECTIVE
TMS is a safe treatment for depression. It is virtually free of side effects. Some patients experience minor discomfort at site of treatment, but it quickly subsides. A majority of patients show a robust response to treatment. Studies show that for people with Major Depressive Disorder (MDD), long-term remission becomes less likely with each prescription medication treatment attempt. As antidepressant medications increase, so can the side effects. TMS helps avoid those side effects and make recovery much more likely!
TMS THERAPY IS LONG LASTING AND FDA APPROVED
Studies show a lasting effect up to, but not limited to, one year after treatment. TMS is FDA approved for treatment resistant depression and is reimbursed by insurance. Feel free to send us a message about insurance questions.
