Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation
When appropriate, we utilize NeuroStar transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) to target key areas of the brain that are underactive in people with depression.
While the exact cause of depression is not known, the leading scientific theory is that it is caused by an imbalance of the brain’s neurotransmitters, which are chemical messengers that send signals between brain cells.
During a NeuroStar treatment session, a magnet similar in strength to that used in a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) machine is used to stimulate nerve cells in the area of the brain thought to control mood. These magnetic pulses may have a positive effect on the brain’s neurotransmitter levels, making long-term remission possible.
Treatment with Neurostar Advanced Therapy (TMS) is easy:
- Therapy sessions are conducted in our office, and last around 15 minutes
- You can return to normal activities right away
- You are awake during treatment
- There are no negative effects on memory or sleep
- It’s covered by most health insurance plans, including Medicare and Tricare
With more than one million treatments performed, this novel treatment approach to achieving remission is bringing new hope to people every day.5
