Does NeuroStar Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) Work to Cure Depression?

Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) is a drug-free treatment for depression. It uses a targeted pulsed magnetic field, similar to what is used in an MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) machine. While the patient is awake and alert, NeuroStar TMS Therapy stimulates areas of the brain that are underactive in depression.

we utilize proven, state-of-the-art technology to treat psychiatric and neurological disorders. Our mission is to make Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation therapy widely available in every community so that any patient struggling with severe depression, or other debilitating psychological disorders, has access to its life changing effects.

Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) is a method of treatment that involves re-balancing brain chemicals without reliance on medication. Although TMS has been around since 1985, with more research & clinical data, it is only in recent years that it has grown into a more conventional approach for treatment resistant depression. A course of TMS therapy usually lasts up to 6-8 weeks, during which time patients are continuously evaluated to ensure the treatment is working. Results can be felt up to two years after treatment. However, maintenance treatments are recommended.
