Complete Remission of Depression is Posssible.
Depression is a treatable condition, but for some people, standard treatments aren’t effective. New Brain Institute’s Deep Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) is a noninvasive procedure that uses magnetic fields to stimulate nerve cells in the brain to improve symptoms of depression. TMS is typically used when other depression treatments haven’t been effective.
New Brain Institute’s Deep Transactional painlessly stimulates nerve cells in the region of your brain involved in mood control and depression. And it targets regions of the brain that have decreased activity in people with depression.
Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation, or TMS, is a non-invasive depression treatment. It uses magnetism to stimulate the brain. It is extremely safe with minimal side effects and proven to be effective by scientific, extensive research and approved by the Federal drug administration (FDA). It can be used for patients suffering from depression who have not achieved satisfactory improvements from prior antidepressants. It may also be used in certain circumstances as an alternative for antidepressants in patients with depression. It is an amazingly effective treatment for OCD, Anxiety, PTSD, Chronic pain disorder, bipolar disorder, and tinnitus.
TMS does not involve drugs.
TMS is extremely safe with minimal side effects and is proven to be effective by scientific, extensive research and approved by the Federal Drug Administration (FDA).
The FDA approved TMS in 2008 as a treatment to alleviate symptoms of mildly treatment-resistant depression, in which patients have not found relief from antidepressant medication. It has also been studied as a treatment for a number of other disorders, such as schizophrenia, pain, stroke, and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS).
New Brain Institute TMS treatment can be used for patients suffering from depression or other brain disorders (such as OCD, Anxiety, Tinnitus, PTSD, Chronic pain disorder, bipolar disorder) who have not achieved satisfactory improvements from prior antidepressants.
Yes, New Brain Insitute Deep TMS treatment may be used in certain circumstances as an alternative for antidepressants in patients with depression.
There is no weight gain associated with New Brain Insitute’s Deep TMS.
There is no sexual dysfunction associated with TMS.
There is no memory loss associated with TMS, as opposed to electroconvulsive therapy (also known as ECT or shock therapy).
New Brain Institute’s Deep TMS isn’t invasive, doesn’t require anesthesia and is be performed in our office. There is no need for anesthetic, as opposed to electroconvulsive therapy (also known as ECT or shock therapy).
ECT uses an electrical current to create a therapeutic seizure, which causes a dramatic reset of the brain. TMS uses magnetic coils to create electrical currents that stimulate the brain. One shocks, while the other stimulates.
Although safe, NeuroStar technology is often times more superficial and stimulates the brain cells only in certain directions. The treatment sessions are also twice as long as New Brain’s session. New Brain Institute’s Deep TMS technology creates Deep TMS, which stimulates deeper structures in the brain and also is more multidirectional, so neurons in different orientations may also be stimulated, so it is likely to be more effective.
Also, New Brain Institute’s brain mapping sessions — which is used to locate precisely the area of the brain to be stimulated, are easier, take less time, and may be more accurate with New Brain Institute’s Deep TMS technology.
New Brain Insititute’s Deep TMS treatments are about 20 minutes in short 20-second intervals.
