What is NeuroStar TMS?
NeuroStar TMS stands for “Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation.” TMS is a medical procedure that works by delivering highly focused MRI-strength magnetic pulses to noninvasively (without surgery) stimulate the brain and treat major depression.
This magnetic field stimulate the neurons and show depression symptom relief. Patients being treated with TMS do not require anesthesia or sedation. They remain awake and alert and return to work or their daily routine immediately after each treatment
We are excited to be able to offer this treatment and participate in most insurance plans to reduce costs for our patients. Most patients will pay less for their care than the cost of psychiatric medications.
Learn how TMS Works in this Video
For an introduction of TMS therapy, this short video outlines how TMS treats depression by describing the NeuroStar system and the physiology of the brain cells involved in depression. Learn how electrical currents between nerve cells can be altered by TMS to make adjustments in brain cell activity, and eventually rebalance brain chemistry.
Watch how the doctor delivers the repetitive magnetic pulses to the patient, while she is comfortably seated and fully alert. TMS helps those who suffer from treatment-resistant depression rediscover life.
