Regain your vitality...remission from depression is possible with NeuroStar TMS Therapy
The Neuronetics NeuroStar Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) System is a class II medical device. Neuronetics pioneered the NeuroStar TMS Therapy System, and has further refined the NeuroStar TMS Therapy device. It received FDA clearance as a medical device in 2008. TMS therapy sends precise magnetic pulses (similar to an MRI) into the exact area of the brain associated with depression for a non-invasive, non-systemic, non-drug treatment for depression. The NeuroStar solutions device uses highly focused, targeted magnetic pulses to stimulate function in targeted regions of the brain. NeuroStar TMS Therapy® is safe and effective. It is performed as an outpatient procedure, in a physician's office. Each treatment session lasts about 37 minutes, and is done daily (five days a week) for six weeks.
According to research, depression is considered to be a serious illness worldwide, affecting between 14 and 16.1 million people in the U.S, and as many as 350 million people around the globe. While there is little doubt that the typically prescribed medications help to manage symptoms, many patients report that they are just not satisfied with the results and side effects they are getting from the standard drug therapy protocol used for treating their depression. Frankly, if you or a loved one is dealing with this disease, the effects of depression can be devastating to you and your family. On a very positive note, there is hope! TMS therapy has given doctors a new and successful non-pharmacological tool to help their patients achieve remission from depression, bringing them and their families relief. Many patients have been heard to say, "the gray in my life is gone; the heaviness has been lifted".
