TMS Solutions Treatment Centers
TMS Solutions Denver, in conjunction with Rocky Mountain TMS, is pleased to announce they are now treating patients utilizing NeuroStar's revolutionary, FDA cleared TMS Therapy® procedure, as the newest TMS Solutions Treatment Center. Located at 90 Madison St. #105, in Denver, Colorado, they can be reached by phone at 303-484-9788.
TMS Solutions Co-founder and partner, Christopher Blackburn was excited to make the announcement, with Dr. Steve Sarche and his partners Dr. Anita Khanna and Dr. Elaine Sandler,who are all in full time private practice in Denver, Colorado. In their practices, they serve people of all ages, providing confidential evaluations and treatment backed by the highest level of training in their respective fields. Denver TMS accepts clients through professional and self–referrals.
Blackburn noted that the NeuroStar TMS Therapy System is FDA approved 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.” Blackburn added that in some of their other TMS Solutions Treatment Centers they are seeing:
- More than 1 of 2 patients receive partial remission from depression with a decrease of 60% or greater of their symptoms.
- 1 of 3 patients gain full remission from their disease.
"This is a game changer in so many ways", Blackburn noted that TMS also shows promise in dealing with PTSD, Tinnitus, and Postpartum Depression — although insurance is currently covering only depression treatments. Blackburn excitedly added that TMS solutions is also taking part in a Clinical Trial for Treating Adolescent Depression.
TMS is a non-invasive, drug free treatment that is administered to the left pre-frontal cortex, which has been found to stimulate under performing areas of the brain.
As TMS Solutions Denver, in addition to the TMS Therapy they are now beginning to administer, and also provide psychotherapy as well as medication management. To determine whether or not TMS or medication treatment is indicated, they conduct a comprehensive assessment of target symptoms and provide detailed education on the benefits and risks of medication so that an individual or a child and his/her parents can determine whether or not that is an option they wish to pursue.
TMS Therapy is a promising tool for treating depression, and is outside of the normal pharmacological/medicinal box in which doctors have been treating this illness. This is great news for patients suffering from depression, and for doctors to have another tool in their arsenal for treating the disease that affects upwards of 16 million Americans.
- TMS Therapy is covered by several insurance carriers and Medicare.
- TMS Therapy is a non-systemic treatment, meaning it does not circulate in the bloodstream.
- It is also non-invasive, in that it does not involve surgery. It is also drug free.
- The process uses a highly-focused MRI-strength magnetic field pulse to a specific part of the brain, which leads to activation of cortical and deep brain structures known to be involved in mood regulation.
- The treatment is available only by prescription and administered daily for 6 weeks.
Blackburn, in addition to his business development duties, is also a patient advocate, working with patients and their insurers. Patients considering TMS treatment can go to www.tmssolutions.com for more information, or talk with their doctor or Mr. Blackburn to see if they are candidates for this treatment.
