About TMS

The Research of TMS
First used in 1985, TMS has been used by researchers around the world to help understand the function of different parts of the brain. Several hundred manuscripts have been published regarding its use in stimulating select regions of the brain. Since the mid 1990s, TMS has been studied as an antidepressant therapy.

In 2006, the largest randomized, controlled study ever conducted with TMS Therapy was completed. This study was sponsored by Neuronetics and utilized the NeuroStar TMS Therapy system.

FDA Approval in October 2008: Recently, the NeuroStar TMS Therapy system, was cleared by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for the treatment of adult patients with major depressive disorder who have failed to receive satisfactory improvement from prior medication antidepressant treatment 4 attempts of which 1 was adequate in the current episode. TMS is also approved for other medical uses

What is transcranial magnetic stimulation?
Transcranial magnetic stimulation procedure used to treat major depressive disorder (MDD) or sometimes termed as "major depression". The technique involves use of an electromagnetic coil to create electromagnetic pulses in the brain which have an antidepressant effect. It is an FDA-approved treatment for major depression.

What is NeuroStar TMS Therapy®
TMS (transcranial magnetic stimulation) Therapy is a new treatment cleared by the FDA for patients suffering from depression who have not achieved satisfactory improvement from prior antidepressant medications.* Using pulsed magnetic fields, TMS Therapy stimulates the part of the brain thought to be involved with mood regulation. Performed [in our clinic] as an outpatient procedure 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 bloodstream throughout the body.

The typical treatment course consists of 5 treatments per week over a 4-6 week period (20-30 treatments). Each treatment session lasts approximately 37 minutes.
