What is TMS?

TMS is a Therapeutic Breakthrough

What is TMS? Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) is a technological breakthrough in the treatment of Major Depression, PTSD, Anxiety, OCD and other disorders. It is an FDA-approved, non-invasive treatment that has been recognized by the American Psychiatric Association in its Best Practices Guidelines as an effective treatment for depression. TMS is a safe and effective outpatient treatment for individuals diagnosed with Major Depressive Disorder (MDD) or similar disorders who have not experienced satisfactory improvement from antidepressant medication or other treatments.

TMS Therapy is Not Invasive

TMS is non-invasive, meaning that it does not involve any anesthesia or sedation, as the patient remains awake and alert during the treatment. It is also non-systemic, meaning that it does not circulate in the bloodstream throughout the body. Side effects frequently experienced from antidepressant medications (i.e. weight gain, sexual dysfunction, tiredness, etc) do not occur with TMS therapy. There is no recovery time either, so patients can drive home afterwards and resume their daily activities.

TMS Therapy is Effective

In FDA clinical trials, 2 out of every 3 patients reported remission or a significant reduction in depression symptoms after completion of TMS Therapy. Subsequent studies have consistently shown at least 3 out of every 4 patients positively responding to NeuroStim TMS Therapy.
