Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation
Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation is a non-invasive procedure that uses magnetic fields to stimulate nerve cells in the brain in order to improve the symptoms of depression. It is our goal to provide access to effective and cutting edge treatments.
NeuroStar Advanced Therapy (TMS) is an innovative, FDA-cleared therapy for adults 18 to 70 years of age that can help people who struggle with Major Depressive Disorder.
It is not electroconvulsive therapy. It helps activate the natural function of the brain’s neurotransmitters using a non-invasive magnetic field. Precisely targeted NeuroStar Advanced Therapy makes long-term remission possible.
Many insurance companies have established medical coverage policies for TMS Therapy and our team can review any specific questions you may have regarding coverage.

Science suggests that depression is caused by underactive areas of
the brain thought to regulate mood. When mood plummets it can impact selfperception and self-esteem. That’s why we offer NeuroStar® Advanced Therapy, a non-invasive,
non-drug transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) that treats depression at the source. NeuroStar is a precise patented technology that delivers the right dose to the right location every time. Perhaps it’s time to consider a non-drug treatment for depression.

How Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation Works
Transcranial magnetic stimulation uses a targeted pulsed magnetic field similar to what is used in an MRI. Patients are awake and alert during treatment and can resume their normal activities immediately after their treatment.
It is an in-office treatment that takes 19 to 37 minutes and is administered 5 days a week, for approximately 4-6 weeks.
