What is Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS)?

Approved by the FDA in 2008 with over 3 million treatments completed. TMS Therapy is a medical technology breakthrough in the treatment of Major Depression Disorder (MDD). TMS Therapy is a procedure that uses magnetic fields to stimulate nerve cells in the brain to improve symptoms of depression. TMS may be tried when other depression treatments have failed. 


A safe, noninvasive, and effective depression treatment without medication. 

  • Approved by US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to treat patients    with Major Depression Disorder (MDD)

What to expect:

  • Treatment: 6 weeks, five days a week, 15-40 minute outpatient procedure  
  • No anesthesia or sedation - Patients remain awake and alert, some choose to read a book or magazine during treatment
  • Side affects: itching and scalp discomfort. These typically subside after week one.

How TMS Therapy works

TMS Therapy Process

To stimulate the depressed brain using TMS Therapy, there are four steps that take place during the 15-40 minute treatment:

  1. Patient reclines comfortably in the treatment chair, awake and alert
  2. A small curved device containing the magnetic coil rests lightly on the patients head.
  3. The device delivers focused magnetic stimulation directly to the target area of the brain.
  4. Once treatment is finished for the patient can immediately resume all normal activities.

During treatment, the patient hears a clicking sound and feels a tapping sensation on the head. The most common side effect is generally a mild-to-moderate pain or discomfort at or near the treatment area during the session. When this occurs it is temporary, and typically occurs only during the first week of treatment.
