Clinical trials have proven the effectiveness of NeuroStar TMS Therapy

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

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.

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 Therapy

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. NeuroStar uses transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) to target key areas of the brain that are underactive in people with depression. It is not ECT (electroconvulsive therapy).
