What is TMS?
Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) Therapy, was FDA-cleared in October 2008 for patients suffering from depression who had not achieved satisfactory improvement from prior antidepressant treatment.
TMS Therapy is a short outpatient procedure, performed under the supervision of Dr. Lorraine Innes while you remain awake and alert.
Using pulsed magnetic fields, Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) therapy stimulates the part of the brain thought to be involved with mood regulation. The typical initial course of treatment is about 18 -37 minutes daily over 4-6 weeks with a 2-3 week taper.
TMS Therapy has been shown to provide relief to people with chronic, treatment-resistant depression.
