Why Choose a Neurostar Provider?

NeuroStar Logo

In 2008 the FDA cleared TMS as a safe and effective treatment for Major Depressive Disorder. At River City TMS we use NeuroStar, the first device to receive FDA clearance and with the largest clinical data set of any TMS system for depression.

TMS treatment should not be painful. You may feel some local discomfort at the start of treatment, but our patients often report this sensation fading with each successive treatment. If you experience sharp pain (e.g., nerve pain, tooth ache, etc.) during treatment, please let us know and we can follow a set of protocols developed by NeuroStar to prevent discomfort.

Only NeuroStar has the world’s largest depression outcomes registry. In a study released in 2020, Sackeim et al. found that of patients who received a full course of treatment with the NeuroStar device: 83% experienced marked improvement in depressive symptoms, and 62% experienced full remission.1

Important Safety Information

The most common side effect is pain or discomfort at or near the treatment site. These events are transient; they occur during the TMS treatment course and do not occur for most patients after the first week of treatment. There is a rare risk of seizure associated with the use of TMS therapy (<0.1% per patient).

NeuroStar Advanced Therapy should not be used with patients who have non-removable conductive metal in or near the head. NeuroStar Advanced Therapy has not been studied in patients who have not received prior antidepressant treatment.
