TMS is an FDA-cleared, non-invasive treatment for Major Depressive Disorder that has been recognized by the American Psychiatric Association in its Best Practices Guidelines as an effective treatment for depression. TMS therapy differs from traditional drug therapy because it employs MRI-strength magnetic impulses that are targeted only to specific regions of the brain involved in the regulation of mood. Consequently, TMS is free of the systemic side effects common to drug therapy. Learn more at TMS Treatment Options. Similarly, TMS therapy differs dramatically from Electroconvulsive Therapy or ECT. ECT is a procedure in which electric currents are passed through the brain, intentionally triggering a brief seizure. Patients undergo sedation with each ECT treatment and ECT is known to have numerous side effects including memory loss. Find out more at ECT vs. TMS.

Under the supervision of our Chief Medical Officer and Medical Directors, our TMS Specialists provide a safe, non-invasive and effective outpatient procedure that has helped thousands of patients who have not responded well to drug therapy.
