Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation

What is TMS?

TMS, or Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation, is a non-invasive medical procedure used to treat depression. It involves the use of a magnetic field to stimulate nerve cells in the brain.

During a TMS session, an electromagnetic coil is placed on the patient's scalp, and a magnetic field is generated, which passes through the skull and stimulates nerve cells in the prefrontal cortex of the brain. This region of the brain is associated with mood regulation, and it is believed that TMS can help to normalize the activity of this area, leading to a reduction in depressive symptoms.

TMS is typically used as a treatment option for people who have not responded well to other treatments for depression, such as medication or psychotherapy. It is generally considered safe and well-tolerated, with few side effects.

A typical course of TMS treatment involves multiple sessions, typically five days a week for four to six weeks. The exact number and duration of sessions may vary depending on the patient's individual needs and response to treatment.

Overall, TMS is a great treatment option for depression, and it has been shown to be effective in a number of clinical trials.
