TMS (Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation)

What is TMS?

TMS (Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation) is an FDA approved treatment for depression where a doctor painlessly stimulates a patients' brain with safe electromagnets. 

What are the uses of TMS?

TMS is used to treat depression in the patient population who don’t respond to antidepressant medication and psychotherapy.

How TMS therapy works?

The magnetic pulses induce small electric currents that change the firing patterns of neurons, altering dysfunctional brain patterns associated with depression. In simple words, TMS stimulates specific areas of the brain to provide relief and break the cycle of depression.
