Frequently Asked Questions

What is TMS Therapy?

TMS Therapy is a clinical breakthrough for those battling depression.  More importantly it’s an alternative to standard drug therapy (antidepressants).  There are many patients that are resistant to antidepressants – our TMS patients have tried 4-6 antidepressants (& sometimes way more).  TMS is another viable option that can help you win your battle against depression. TMS Therapy is a stand alone machine that delivers magnetic pulses precisely to the part the brain associated with mood control.  These magnetic pulses stimulate your brain cells which results in the release of natural chemicals – serotonin, dopamine & norepinephrine (the chemicals most commonly associated with happiness). This process restores the neurochemicals to normal levels.  And, as a result, reverses depression.

 

Is TMS Therapy right for me?

Those experiencing depression that have had unsuccessful results from antidepressant(s) are good candidates for TMS Therapy. 

Is TMS Therapy safe?

As far as safety concerns, Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) has been studied extensively for over 20 years and is an FDA approved treatment for depression. TMS Therapy is a safer alternative to standard drug therapy because TMS has a safer side effect profile relative to antidepressants.  Instead of being distributed to all parts of the body like antidepressants, TMS treatment is localized to the area where depression resides. It’s important to note that TMS Therapy should not be administered to patients who have a seizure disorder and/or have had metal materials implanted within the brain. 

How do I know if my insurance covers TMS Therapy?

For anyone, dealing with insurance companies can be a daunting, overwhelming & intimidating task.  For someone who is unfamiliar with the insurance coverage process, this can be a nightmare.  Luckily, our practice has dealt with these insurance companies for 27 years.  We have created an efficient process & questionnaire that allows us to check and see if you’re covered.  Let us handle the insurance company so that you can fight your depression.  We want to remove this headache from your journey to a healthier life.  If you have any questions at all, please contact us.

How does TMS Therapy work?

TMS Therapy uses short pulses of magnetic fields to stimulate the area of the brain that is thought to function abnormally in patients with depression. The magnetic field produces an electric current in the brain that stimulates the brain cells (neurons). This results in changes that are thought to be beneficial in the treatment of depression.
