Drug Free Depression Treatment!

TMS stands for Transcranial Magnetic stimulation. This is an FDA approved treatment for treatment resistant depression since 2008.

TMS is non-drug treatment for major depression. TMS uses focused magnetic pulses, similar to an MRI, to reignite dormant synapses in the brain and help your brain function the way it was meant to.

Excel Psychiatry utilizes Neurostar TMS Machine for TMS treatment.

The NeuroStar Therapy is for the treatment of depressive episodes and for decreasing anxiety symptoms for those who may exhibit comorbid anxiety symptoms in adult patients suffering from Major Depressive Disorder (MDD) and who failed to achieve satisfactory improvement from previous antidepressant medication treatment in the current episode.

The NeuroStar Therapy is intended to be used as an adjunct for the treatment of adult patients suffering from Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD).

TMS Treatment for Depression

More Medication Is Not Always The Answer

Depression is very common, and symptoms can include fatigue, poor concentration, sleep problems and more.

Depression is caused by reduced activity in the Brain. The loss of activity can lead to an imbalance in the brain’s neurotransmitters, which changes the way brain cells signal each other.


Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ's) on Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS)

Is TMS covered by Insurance?

TMS is FDA approved and covered by most insurances. Our staff at Excel Psychiatry  take care of the approval process for you, so you can start the treatments right away. TMS Program does offer cash pay options as well.

How does TMS work in the Brain?

NeuroStar TMS therapy is approved for the treatment of Major Depressive Disorder and Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD). Patients who have failed to achieve satisfactory improvement using antidepressant medications now have a non-invasive treatment option that has been proven to be effective and safe with little to no side effects.

What does the TMS treatment feel like?

TMS treatment begins with the client sitting back in a comfortable reclining chair. The magnetic coil is designed to be painless and offer small taps to the head. This will continue for about 18 minutes. Treatments continue for five days a week, for 6-7 weeks to complete the course.

What should I expect?

Because TMS is a non-drug treatment, people don’t experience side effects like those associated with antidepressant medications. The most common side effect is temporary pain or discomfort at or near the treatment site. These effects are temporary and do not occur for most people after the first week of treatment. Precisely targeted Therapy makes long-term remission possible. It delivers the right dose to the right location, every time. TMS Therapy was cleared by the FDA in 2008.
