TMS is the Newest Antidepressant for Treating Major Depression That’s Not a Pill

If you are like our other patients in Los Angeles County or Orange County, you or someone you know is suffering from major depression disorder (MDD) and are looking for treatment. You probably have already tried all sorts of antidepressant drugs such as Rexulti, Trintellix, Vraylar, Abilify, and Cymbalta. You may have even attempted a list of natural antidepressants such as SAM-e, St John’s Wort, or 5-HTP. Perhaps you have even tried holistic and natural depression therapy touted by some such as acupuncture, specific diets, exercising, getting sunlight, and talking to therapists, psychologists, or psychiatrist to help you overcome depression. You may have become even desperate enough to try invasive, painful, and costly surgeries that leave you bedridden or even contemplated using electroshock therapy (ECT) to heal your depression. Well don’t lose hope, because we are an Internationally Recognized TMS Treatment Provider in Los Angeles County.

But nothing seems to be working… These depression cures you’ve tried leave you feeling plagued by miserable side effects such as weight gain, headaches, massive and uncontrollable mood swings. Or perhaps they simply don’t work and leave you feeling down and hopeless. We are here to tell you that you are not alone and we are here to help. Check out any of our service areas below to try a TMS Treatment Center in Los Angeles and Orange County.

WHAT IS TMS THERAPY?

Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) also known as rTMS (Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation) is an alternative treatment for depression and anxiety. TMS therapy is one of the few depression treatments without medications or drugs. Cleared for use by the FDA in October 2008, TMS is a non-invasive, non-systemic treatment that utilizes MRI strength magnetic pulses to stimulate areas of the brain known to be underactive in depression.

TMS is a powerfully effective and safe depression treatment without medication for all types of depression. TMS is non-systemic (not through the whole body like medication) and non-invasive (not entering the body). It is non-invasive and requires no medications (which helps patients avoid nasty side-effects they tend to experience with antidepressants and other depression medication). As a result, patients’ lives continue as normal during treatment.

Administered in our depression centers without anesthesia, rTMS treatments last about 30 minutes and are typically given five days a week for six to eight weeks. Side effects are minimal and usually only involve discomfort at the site of treatment. Patients are able to work, go to school, or continue any of their daily activities.

TMS treatment is an FDA approved, outpatient procedure performed in our TMS depression treatment centers or clinics.

Founded by an Internationally Recognized Leader in the Field

Todd-Hutton

We have successfully administered 100,000+ TMS treatments helping thousands of individuals suffering from major depression.

How Does TMS Therapy Compare To Other Depression Treatments?

Every year the number of patients suffering from treatment-resistant depression is rising. Traditional depression treatments involving antidepressants, medications, natural depression therapies, and even holistic depression treatments are not as effective or as cost-effective as they have been in the past. Over the last 15 years, new treatments have emerged but not all treatments are equally as safe or effective.

TMS is often confused with ECT (Electroconvulsive Therapy) and Deep TMS. While it shares similarities TMS is more different than similar and substantially more effective and safer than either. Deep TMS has a higher documented seizure rate than normal TMS, and ECT commonly leaves patients with short term memory loss and confusion. TMS over 10 years of clinical experience has shown to be extremely safe and is by far the best treatment for depression.
