Christopher Blackburn, TMS Solutions Founder is pleased to announce, that along with Dr. Meghann Sprague, they will begin treating patients for their depression at their second Spokane location at 765 Holland Road, Suite 1, Spokane, WA 99218. Phone: 509-505-1283.
TMS Solutions utilizes the latest in equipment and technology developed through a collaboration of Silicon Valley technology and forward-thinking medical scientists. These devices utilize MRI-strength magnetic pulses to stimulate neurons in the area of the brain that controls mood and promotes the release of the chemicals targeted by antidepressants – all without the terrible side-effects of prescription drugs. TMS does not introduce electricity into the brain and is not ECT or shock therapy.
"This technology is life-changing in so many ways", the Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Robert Sammons, M.D., Ph.D. noted. Insurance and Medicare are currently only covering treatment for resistant depression, TMS is also showing great results in treating Tinnitus, Postpartum Depression, Anxiety, PTSD and Addiction. The FDA recently approved TMS for the treatment of OCD. “The treatment for depression is just the beginning of what we will see TMS used for in clinical settings in the years to come,” declares Dr. Sammons.
Blackburn noted that the transcranial magnetic stimulation treatment (TMS) is FDA cleared and is “indicated for the treatment of Major Depressive Disorder (MDD) in adult patients who have failed to receive satisfactory improvement from prior antidepressant medication in the current episode.”
Depression is a disease that affects upwards of 15 million Americans and costs our economy of more than $210 billion annually. If antidepressants have failed, TMS may be the right answer. TMS Solutions does much more than provide treatments for depression. To determine if the therapy is appropriate, TMS Solutions conducts a comprehensive assessment of targeted symptoms and provides a detailed profile on the benefits and risks so that an individual can determine if TMS is an option they wish to pursue.
TMS Solutions is thrilled to be working with Dr. Meghann Sprague, conveniently offering TMS technology to patients and potential patients in the North Spokane area.
