Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS)

What is transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS)?

Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) is a noninvasive, outpatient treatment that directs recurring magnetic energy pulses at the specific region (or area) of the brain involved in mood regulation. The painless magnetic pulses pass through the skull and stimulate brain cells which can improve communication between different parts of the brain. When these TMS pulses are delivered at regular intervals it is known as repetitive TMS (or r TMS). The stimulation has a positive effect on how the brain functions, which can ease depressive symptoms and boost mood"


What is TMS used for?

TMS therapy has been FDA-approved for the treatment of major depressive disorder (MDD), obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), and pain management. While depression is a treatable condition, TMS is typically used when standard treatments, such as medication and therapy, have not provided satisfactory relief, or when the side of medication are intolerable. TMS can be a safer treatment option for many patients because it does not cause any undesired systemic  effects side like medications and brings remission to depression for most patients.
