TMS (Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation) is an effective, non-medication treatment for depression. This proven intervention can help reduce depression symptoms, especially for patients suffering from medication-resistant depression, who are not improving with the use of antidepressants.
TMS Therapy uses precisely targeted magnetic pulses that stimulate key areas of the brain, which are underactive in patients with depression. It is a brief, outpatient procedure, requiring a series of treatment sessions to be effective. Generally, sessions are carried out daily, five times a week for about six weeks. Sessions usually take about 20, minutes, and patients can return to their normal activities immediately after treatment. TMS is not ECT or “shock treatment”. TMS has no anesthesia or seizure involved, and there are no cognitive or memory side effects with TMS. Learn more>>
