Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation

Non-Invasive, Drug Free Depression Treatment

Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) is a non-invasive FDA approved revolutionary treatment resulting in brain stimulation to reduce depression symptoms.

TMS was first developed in the early 1980s, but was only FDA-cleared in October 2008 for patients suffering from depression who have not achieved satisfactory improvement from prior antidepressant medications. Using pulsed magnetic fields, transcranial magnetic stimulation therapy stimulates the part of the brain thought to be involved with mood regulation.

TMS Therapy is a short outpatient procedure, performed in your psychiatrist’s office under his or her supervision while you remain awake and alert.
