TMS Therapy


Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation

Approved by the FDA in 2008, Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation is solidly established and proven for treating depression. Magnetic waves similar to those in an MRI create an electrical field in a specifically targeted area of the brain. This stimulates the release of neurotransmitters (serotonin, norepinephrine, and dopamine) on a regular basis. During a course of treatment new neurological connections are established and existing ones are strengthened. The effects of a course of TMS are long lasting, up to a year or two and beyond.

TMS has been proven effective with patients who have experienced multiple medication failures or only limited success. Research demonstrates that, even after several trials of medications, over one third of patients continue to have significant symptoms. They are candidates for TMS.

TMS treatments are painless and there are no restrictions on activities before or after.

A typical course of treatment consists of thirty six visits. Each treatment takes approximately five-to-twenty minutes. TMS is conducted in the Buffalo Grove office.
