About Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS)

NeuroStar TMS Therapy is a new treatment cleared by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for patients suffering from depression who have not achieved satisfactory improvement from prior antidepressant treatment. TMS stands for "transcranial magnetic stimulation."

TMS Therapy is a treatment that can be performed in a psychiatrist's office, under his or her supervision, using a medical device called the NeuroStar TMS Therapy system. NeuroStar 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.

The typical initial treatment course consists of at least 5 treatments per week over a 4-6 week period, for an average of 20-30 total treatments. Each treatment session lasts approximately 40 minutes.

We are pleased to announce that TMS (Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation) Therapy was featured on an episode of The Dr. Oz Show. The episode, which aired on Wednesday, March 14th, 2012, featured TMS Therapy as a depression treatment option for patients who have not benefited from initial antidepressant medication. Please see Dr. Oz's page on the TMS segment to view the episode.
