Is TMS Therapy an Effective Treatment for Depression?

Have you sought treatment for your depression from antidepressants only to find less than satisfactory results? NeuroStar TMS Therapy is a new treatment option clinically proven to improve symptoms of depression in patients that did not respond to prior antidepressant treatment.

What is Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation?

Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation, TMS Therapy, uses short pulses of magnetic fields to stimulate nerve cells in one of the areas of the brain thought to control mood. TMS Therapy is performed in our psychiatric office while you remain awake and alert.

Does Insurance Cover TMS Therapy?

Yes! We have successfully obtained coverage for our patients with Aetna, Anthem Blue Cross, Blue Shield, MHN, Cigna, United Healthcare, HealthNet, CHIPA, Magellan, and many other companies!

Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) is a non-invasive and non-medication physical treatment designed to improve brain activity in strategic areas of the brain. Often, one of the causes of MDD, OCD, or other mental health conditions is depressed brain activity. Patients with chronic mental health conditions like MDD and OCD often experience lowered brain activity in areas of the brain that regulate mood, emotion, and behavior.

TMS therapy physically improves brain activity with the use of electromagnetic waves (like an MRI). These waves are directed to the brain via a treatment device to safely stimulate areas of your brain. Over time and with regular treatments, patients experience reduced symptomatic effects of their mental health conditions.

Medication treatments work to regulate your brain from the inside out. Physical treatments such as TMS therapy work to enhance your brain function from the outside in. While both of these therapies could help patients with chronic mental health conditions, Neurostar Advanced TMS can be a good alternative for patients in Beverly Hills, Glendale, and Long Beach who do not respond well to medication treatments.

What Is NeuroStar Advanced Therapy?

NeuroStar Advanced therapy is a cutting-edge TMS treatment for MDD and OCD patients and is especially for patients who have not achieved success with traditional medication. NeuroStar is the number one physician-recommended TMS therapy for adults with MDD, OCD, and MDD with anxious depression..

NeuroStar Advanced TMS is delivered in 20-minute therapy sessions in our Beverly Hills, Glendale, and Long Beach clinics by one of our clinicians. During your treatment, a NeuroStar treatment device is held to your head in a very specific position. Electromagnetic waves are safely emitted to your brain through the device. These electromagnetic waves excite the neurons in your brain, stimulating your brain to be more active in a safe and controlled manner.

With regular treatment sessions, your brain is trained to improve its activity, and over time, it learns how to better its functioning on its own. Most patients experience optimal results after the recommended seven-week NeuroStar treatment course.

How NeuroStar TMS Therapy Works
Here’s what you can expect from a NeuroStar Advanced Therapy (TMS) session:
Before Treatment
You’ll recline comfortably in the treatment chair. A small, curved magnetic coil will be positioned lightly on your head.
During Treatment
NeuroStar delivers focused magnetic stimulation directly to the target areas of the brain. You’ll hear a clicking sound and feel a tapping sensation on your head.
After Treatment
You can resume normal activities immediately. Because there are no effects on alertness or memory, you can drive yourself to and from treatment sessions. In-office treatment with NeuroStar TMS Therapy typically takes 17-37 minutes.
