We Now Offer NeuroStar® TMS Therapy for Major Depression

 

Because every second counts, and every minute matters. Every day we make a difference, finding better ways to prevent, detect, diagnose and treat illnesses.

All of our Clinical Trials are research studies on new drugs or new treatments sponsored by government institutions or pharmaceutical companies. These new drugs and treatments are the latest advances in medicine, but have not yet been approved by the FDA to market. They may have been prescribed for the treatment of one diagnosis and are now being studied for another diagnosis. 

Clinical research can take years and the process is heavily regulated by the FDA. Despite the challenges, our experienced team and modern facilities lead the industry by providing accurate results in a timely manner. Our staff will closely monitor each participant with medical evaluations throughout the entire trial and there is never a charge for these services, as the cost is paid by the sponsor of the trial. 

Our core values of honesty, integrity, and the search for empirical knowledge drive everything we do. We look forward to serving you.

NeuroStar® TMS Therapy (Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation)

NeuroStar® TMS Therapy is a medical procedure that works by delivering highly focused MRI-strength magnetic pulses to noninvasively stimulate the prefrontal cortex (area of brain that controls mood) and treat major depression. When receiving TMS a simple magnetic coil is placed on your head – and some people may hear a slight clicking or feel a tapping sensation.

Clinical trials have proven the effectiveness of TMS Therapy in treating major depression in people who have not benefited from antidepressant medications.

TMS Benefits and Advantages 

  • TMS can restore normal function and reduce the symptoms of depression.

  • One out of three patients was free of depression symptoms completely.

  • Outpatient treatment that does not involve medications or surgery

  • Free of side effects typically experienced with antidepressant medications

  • TMS is conducted in our office under the supervision of a board-certified psychiatrist, and takes under an hour, while you remain awake, alert and sitting comfortably

  • Patients do NOT have to stop taking medication in order to receive TMS

  • Does not require anesthesia or sedation. After treatment you can return to normal activities immediately

  • Covered by some insurance plans - verified upon physician recommendation

NeuroStar® TMS Therapy can make long-term remission possible.
If your antidepressant medications have only taken you so far, maybe it’s time to try something new.
