Cutting-Edge Depression Treatment

NeuroStar Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) is a different way to approach depression. If you have been taking antidepressant medications riddled with side effects and tried psychotherapy to no avail, TMS may be your answer.

NeuroStar TMS has been a proven breakthrough therapy that targets depression at the source. By manipulating electrical currents in the brain through magnetic coils, TMS can help regulate the depressed brain.

How Does NeuroStar TMS Work?

How Does NeuroStar TMS Work?

NeuroStar 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.

Using a gentle magnetic coil carefully placed by a trained technician, TMS stimulates areas of the brain that are underactive due to depression. By strengthening these parts of the brain, one’s mood can progress naturally.

What to Expect During a TMS Appointment

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.

During a treatment session, you’ll sit in a comfortable chair where the technician will map your brainwaves, before then applying a NeuroStar TMS coil to apply repetitive magnetic pulses.

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.

“One study on TMS had 68% of patients demonstrate a clinically meaningful response to treatment, and 45% of patients experience full remission (meaning almost half of patients in the study had their Depression symptoms fully resolve, and more than 2/3 showed a significant improvement).”
(Dunner DL, et al. [2014])
