"I finished TMS about a month ago, and it really helped my depression! With the TMS, medications, and therapy, I feel better than I have in a long time. I would definitely recommend TMS to anyone who was on the fence about whether they should complete the 4-6 week course of treatment."

-Patient review from Healthgrades.com

  In a 2010 NIMH-funded, independent, randomized controlled trial, patients treated with TMS using the Neurostar System were four times more likely to
    achieve remission compared to patients receiving sham treatment

Is TMS right for you?

If you are a patient suffering from depression who has not had satisfactory results from standard antidepressant medication, NeuroStar TMS Therapy may be able to help. This novel alternative depression treatment is not a drug, so it does not circulate throughout the body and does not have the side effects that are associated with drug therapy.

If you agree with two or more of these statements, ask your doctor about NeuroStar TMS Therapy:

  • Depression symptoms have interfered with my daily life.
  • I am not satisfied with the results I get from depression medication.
  • I have had, or have worried about, side effects from depression medications.
  • I have switched medications for depression due to side effects.
  • I am interested in a proven, non-drug therapy for depression.

For patients with depression who have not benefited from antidepressant medication, NeuroStar TMS Therapy can offer HOPE.

Facts about TMS Treatments 

  • Patients are awake and alert during treatments
  • Patients can go back to their normal activities immediately after treatment
  • In-office treatment takes 37 minutes
  • Treatment is administered five days a week, for approximately 4 to 6 weeks 

How TMS Works 

  • uses a pulsed magnetic field to stimulate nerve cells in the left prefrontal cortex known to affect mood
  • Local neurons depolarize and release neurotransmitters
  • Distant areas of the limbic system are activated via neuronal pathways 
  • Blood flow & glucose metabolism rise in the stimulated regions, which is thought to result in improved mood 
 
Costs
  • Covered by most insurance plans including: Blue Cross Blue Shield, Medicare, Tricare, Humana, Aetna, CIGNA, United healthcare, and others.  
  • Financing is available for those whose insurance does not cover the cost of treatments.
