About Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS)
TMS Therapy is an alternative treatment for patients suffering from depression who have not achieved satisfactory improvement from prior antidepressant treatment. This revolutionary technology has been long-studied but has only been recently introduced to the market.
Despite being cleared by the FDA only a couple years ago, TMS has immediately made a mark as an impressive treatment for depression, proving to be extremely noninvasive and very effective for treatment-resistant patients who did not respond to medications.
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 that it is not taken by mouth and does not circulate in the blood stream throughout the body.
