Transcranial Magnet Stimulation
NeuroStar Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) is an advanced therapy which uses a targeted, pulse magnetic field, similar to what is used in a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) machine. The pulses, produced through a NeuroStar FDA approved device are delivered directly to the specific area of the brain involved in depression.
NeuroStar TMS stimulates areas of the brain that are underactive in individuals with depressive symptoms during 19-minute treatment sessions. Unlike medications that are dispersed throughout the body, this is a targeted treatment for depression without the common side effects caused by medications.
After someone has failed two or more antidepressant medication cycles, the chance of improving is significantly lower when compared to the response and improvement rates offered by TMS.
NeuroStar TMS is not electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) and it is covered under insurance policies. Contact us today to set up a consultation to begin achieving full remission of your symptoms.
