Can NeuroStar TMS (Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation) Help?

When you find yourself struggling with depression that is not responding to conventional treatments, consider exploring NeuroStar Advanced TMS Therapy. NeuroStar Advanced TMS is proven depression relief with long-lasting results. 83% of patients who complete treatment experience measurable relief and 62% experience full remission of their depression symptoms**

NeuroStar TMS, or Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation, is an FDA-cleared treatment for the source of your depression – your brain. It uses focused magnetic pulses to reignite inactive synapses in your brain, leading to improved function. Mood regulation is intricately linked to certain areas in your brain, and ”waking” up these connections can have lasting positive effects and make long-term remission from depression a reality.

**Outcomes Registry data was published by Sackeim HA, et al. J Affective Disorders, 2020, 277(12):65-74. The outcomes reported represent the subset of study patients for which the CGI-S data was reported before and after an acute course of NeuroStar TMS. Patients were treated under real-world conditions where patients may have been prescribed concomitant depression treatments including medications. “Measurable relief” was defined as a CGI-S score <=3 and “complete remission” was defined as a CGI-S score <=2 at the end of treatment.
