Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation is a non-invasive treatment that uses MRI technically that delivers magnetic pulses to the brain that controls mood. The treatment is non-invasive, meaning people can continue their daily activities before and after treatment. TMS is a FDA approved treatment for Major Depression disorder since 2008 and covered by most insurances. At our facility we use a device called Magstim to treat major depression and other diagnoses.
Our qualified psychiatric providers and medical assistants will help guide the Magstim device using an electromagnetic field to affect the part of your brain that regulates mood. The treatment emits short pulses of this magnetic field to the identified location of the brain creating a stimulation causing the brain cells to change, improving overall symptoms. As a comparison, an MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) machine uses a similar technology. The patient stays awake throughout the treatment and can return to regular activities immediately afterward.
Our highly trained providers and medical staff will collaborate with you to determine what type of treatment best suits you. We offer Intermittent Theta Burst Therapy (iTBS) and takes approximately 3 minutes per session and is covered by most major insurances. In addition, we offer the Stanford Neuromodulation Therapy (SNT) which is conducted at a more accelerated effective pace. The SNT model protocol is offered at both locations, however, is self-pay as it is not covered by insurance.
