An Effective New Depression Treatment Without Medication.
Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) is a technological breakthrough in the treatment of Major Depression. 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 treatment for Major Depression. TMS is non-systemic (not through the whole body like medication) and non-invasive (not entering the body). As a result, patients’ lives continue as normal during treatment.
Given in an office setting without anesthesia, treatments last about 30 minutes and are typically given 5 days a week for four to six 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 Therapy is an FDA approved, outpatient procedure performed in the offices of Southern California TMS Center. We currently have convenient treatment centers throughout Southern California, including Pasadena, Orange, Lake Forest, Long Beach, Rancho Cucamonga, Sherman Oaks, Thousand Oaks and West Los Angeles.
There is no substitution for experience.
