What is TMS Therapy?

Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) is a revolutionary technology that was approved by the FDA in 2008 as an effective and safe treatment for clinical depression. TMS is a non-invasive technique used to stimulate nerve cells in the brain. TMS involves the use of a magnetic coil placed on the scalp, which delivers magnetic pulses to the brain. These pulses can either stimulate or inhibit activity of neurons in the targeted area of the brain, depending on the frequency and intensity of the pulses. 

For the majority of patients with treatment-resistant depression, TMS leads to complete remission, or elimination, of their symptoms. Backed by NeuroStar’s Outcome Registry, the largest for for any depression treatment, Sackheim et al. found 83% of patients with clinical depression responded to TMS and noticed a significant improvement in their mood, and 62% had a complete remission of their symptoms.1

Using the latest research to help you feel like yourself again, the complete elimination of your symptoms of depression and anxiety is our expectation and our primary goal for your TMS treatment.
