About TMS Therapy

For decades researchers have sought safe and effective treatments for depression.

However there is no single treatment which has been proven to work for everyone. Depressions is always treated with antidepressants ; however alternative treatments are available.

One alternative treatment of depression is Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) and it have been shown to work in people who do not receive benefit from medication or cannot tolerate the side effects caused by them.

TMS Therapy is FDA-cleared for patients suffering from depression.

Physicians explored the therapeutic potential of TMS for the treatment of a variety of diseases, with depression being the most thoroughly studied to date. Since late 1990s, more than 20 randomized, controlled trials studying TMS as a treatment for depression have been published by researchers throughout the world.

TMS Therapy is:

· Non-invasive, meaning that it does not involve surgery.

· It does not require any anesthesia or sedation, as the patient remains awake and alert during the treatment.
· Non-systemic, meaning it does not effect other areas of the body like medications can.

How Does TMS Work?

TMS uses short pulses of magnetic fields to stimulate nerve cells in the are of brain thought to control mood. These pulses do not directly affect the whole brain; they only reach a few centimeters into the brain, directly beneath the treatment coil.

TMS is outpatient procedure. the typical treatment course consist of at least 5 treatments per week over 4-6 week period. each session lasts 19 min.
