Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) is a noninvasive procedure that uses magnetic fields to stimulate nerve cells in the brain to improve symptoms of depression. This treatment option can provide benefits to patients without the side effects often associated with antidepressant medication.
The neurologists at Neurological Associates-The Interventional Group are all trained NeuroStar Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation Providers and treat patients with severe depression using the NeuroStar TMS Therapy System. NeuroStar TMS Therapy is an FDA-cleared and effective non-drug depression treatment for patients who have not found relief from antidepressant medication.
Multiple manufacturers have also come up with more advanced units including MagVenture, BrainsWay, and NeuroCloud. Our doctors have extensive experience from a research and clinical perspective with all the units which are available to use in our practice.
