Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation

Inside the brain every connection matters. Depression occurs when vital areas of your brain become less active. TMS therapy strengthens and helps develop neural pathways and networks within the brain.
This increased connectivity improves mood and mental functions. More importantly it helps you reconnect with your family and friends.

Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) is an advanced technology utilizing magnetic pulses to treat treatment resistant depression (TRD).
Depression is a debilitating brian disorder usually presenting as a complex group of symptoms with neurochemical and hormonal abnormalities.


Recently approved by the U.S. Food and Drug administration (FDA) Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) may reduce the number of migraine episodes, the severity of pain and the duration of episodes.

Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)

OCD is a relatively common mental disorder. It affects approximately 2.3% of the general population. It is resistant to psychotherapy and medication treatment. Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) is also FDA approved for the treatment of OCD due to improved efficacy and benign side effect profile.

What is TMS Therapy?

Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation is a safe, effective, non-invasive, non-systemic alternative to treatment resistant clinical depression. It does not require anesthesia or sedation and is not to be confused with Electroconvulsive “shock” Therapy (ECT).
Treatment Guidelines for Depression

What's depression?


16 million people in the United States suffer from depression. Only half (8 million) seek treatment. Of those who seek treatment, only half (4 million) obtain adequate treatment.

Most of us might feel sad or depressed, which is normal because of life's challenges, or hurt self-esteem, but when those feelings become overwhelming, cause physical symptoms, and last long periods of time, it could be an indication of major depression.

TMS treatment

TMS treatment involves applying magnetic pulses to stimulate nerve cells in the part of the brain that controls mood.
The rapid change in the magnetic field induces a current that stimulates neurons. As a result, metabolism and cell function improve, and consequently depressive symptoms as well.

TMS Treatment Protocol

The treatment protocol consists of repetitive TMS cycles followed by short rest intervals.

1. A psychiatrist completes an assessment with patient who is accompanied by a friend or relative and determines the course of action.

2. The doctor recommends TMS treatment and discusses the therapeutic effect, the possible side effects and when to expect symptom improvement.

3. The initial TMS session or “brain mapping” includes the determination of the motor threshold and cap markings of exact location for placement of the treatment coil and markings on the treatment cap for exact locatio.

4. The TMS protocol requires daily sessions lasting less than 5 minutes (Express TMS) for about 7-8 weeks. Treatment does not require sedation.

5. About 2-3 re-determination of motor threshold with subsequent treatment delivery and management are highly recommended and management dependent on insurance approval.
