TMS in Practice: A Physician's Perspective

The FDA approved transcranial magnetic stimulation in 2008. It’s now being used in doctors’ offices, world-class hospitals, and leading universities. The treatment is even covered by most insurance, including Medicare.

Cumulative Benefits Without Harmful Side Effects

Our office has been using TMS therapy since August 2010 and has treated over 500 individual patients—approximately 15,000 treatments. While the learning process is continuous and constant, we’ve found that one variable of TMS therapy that remains the same is that the total exposure of treatments is cumulative. In other words, the more treatments a patient has, the more robust their response. TMS is found to be more effective than any singular antidepressant. It’s non-systemic, which means it avoids the common side effects caused by anti-depressants, making it an ideal treatment for depression and anxiety. Patients no longer need to struggle with symptoms such as weight gain, dry mouth, sexual dysfunction, and gastrointestinal issues, leading to a much easier road to recovery.

A Quick and Stress-Free Outpatient Experience

As for the treatment process, patients come in three to five times a week for about four to six weeks. We typically recommend approximately 30 treatments in total. You can come in alone or with a relative. You’ll sit in a relaxed position during the actual treatment, which lasts 18 to 19 minutes. Afterwards, you’re safe to drive yourself home. We have a wide range of ages among our patients, all of which find the treatment very easy to tolerate and complete. Younger patients tend to respond particularly well.

Two Out of Three Patients Experience Remission

From a statistical viewpoint, we have a remission rate of two out of every three patients. Overall, TMS therapy has shown an incredibly high degree of promise, especially when compared to other treatments. The treatment itself is being studied and developed further to see if there is a possibility of treating other diagnoses and is already showing great success in off-label trials.
