Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation

Depression is a treatable condition, but for some people, standard treatments aren't effective.

Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) is a noninvasive procedure that uses magnetic fields to stimulate nerve cells in the brain to improve symptoms of depression. TMS is typically used when other depression treatments, such as medication and talk therapy, haven't been effective.

During a TMS session, an electromagnetic coil (similar to those used in MRI procedures) is placed against the scalp near the forehead. The electromagnet painlessly delivers a magnetic pulse that stimulates nerve cells in the region of the brain involved in mood control and depression.
