Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS)

TMS is an alternative treatment indicated for the treatment of Major Depression Disorder.  NeuroStar TMS uses a targeted magnetic pulse, similar to what is used in an MRI machine, to alter the patterns of your brain to decrease the symptoms of depression. Placing a magnetic coil against the side of a patient’s head, practitioners then apply a series of pulses within the magnet to stimulate the nerves in your brain responsible for mood control. The theory behind this particular type of therapy suggests that stimulating and awakening areas of the brain that are usually less active in depressed individuals will help alleviate the symptoms of depression and improve a patient’s quality of life.

NeuroStar TMS Therapy is free of systemic side effects associated with specific MDD treatments

NeuroStar Advanced Therapy (TMS) is safe and easy to tolerate. Because it is not a depression drug, NeuroStar TMS Therapy does not have the same side effects that are associated with traditional antidepressant medications. More than 1.6 million treatments have been performed with NeuroStar, further proving its safety and tolerability record.
