How it works

Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) uses a targeted pulsed magnetic field, similar to what is used in an MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) machine. While the patient is awake and alert, TMS Therapy stimulates areas of the brain that are underactive in depression.

Where you are

Every day with depression is a struggle. When antidepressant medications aren’t working, it’s hard to know what to turn to next.

Try it Yourself

Repetitive TMS is a noninvasive form of brain stimulation used for depression. Unlike vagus nerve stimulation or deep brain stimulation, rTMS does not require surgery or implantation of electrodes. And, unlike electroconvulsive therapy (ECT), rTMS doesn’t cause seizures or require sedation with anesthesia.

Generally, rTMS is considered safe and well-tolerated. However, it can cause some side effects

The right treatment can get improve your life.

Depression is a treatable condition, but for some people, standard treatments aren’t effective. Repetitive TMS is typically used when standard treatments such as medications and talk therapy (psychotherapy) don’t work.

Your Journey

Before having rTMS, you may need a:

  • Physical exam and possibly lab tests or other tests
  • Psychiatric evaluation to discuss your depression

These evaluations help make sure that rTMS is safe and a good option for you.
