TMS in Practice: A Physician's Perspective

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

Cumulative Benefits Free of Harmful Side Effects

Our office has been using TMS therapy since August 2010 and has treated over 500 individual patients, which equates to 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 the response. This treatment is found to be more effective than any singular antidepressant. TMS is non-systemic, which means that the common side effects caused by anti-depressants are avoided, 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 Inpatient Experience

As for the treatment process, patients come in anywhere from three to five times a week for about four to six weeks. We typically recommend approximately 30 treatments in total. When they come in, they can either come alone or with a relative. The patient sits in a relaxed position, and the actual treatment is about 18 to 19 minutes. Afterwards ,patients are safe to drive themselves 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. From a statistical viewpoint, we have a remission rate of two out of every three patients.

Two Out of Three Patients Experience Remission

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 even further to see if there is a possibility of treating other diagnoses, and is already showing great success in off-label trials.
