What is TMS?
TMS is a non-invasive treatment that uses magnetic fields to stimulate specific areas of the brain believed to be involved in mood regulation. The treatment is administered using a specialized device that delivers the magnetic fields to the targeted areas of the brain. TMS is usually administered on an outpatient basis, with treatment sessions lasting around 30-60 minutes.
Benefits of TMS:
TMS does not require surgery or the use of medications, making it a safer option for patients who may have allergies or sensitivities, or who may be pregnant.
High success rates
TMS has been shown to be effective in reducing symptoms of depression in many patients, with some studies reporting success rates as high as 70%.
The effects of TMS treatment can last for months or even years after treatment has ended, making it a potentially long-term solution for patients struggling with depression.
Minimal side effects
TMS is generally well-tolerated, with minimal side effects reported. The most common side effect is a mild to moderate headache, which can usually be relieved with over-the-counter pain medication
