For a long time these have been the questions: What can a patient do if antidepressants and/or ECT don’t work? What can be done to help people who don’t want to suffer medication side effects, or the side effects of ECT?
For decades there were no answers, but now the answer is TMS!
Now there is an alternative treatment for depression – our Advanced TMS using the NeuroStar Therapy System – FDA approved because it is both safe and effective.
- TMS is the alternative to ECT
- TMS is the alternative to antidepressant drugs
TMS is even being considered to be preventive medicine in that it prevents ECT, and prevents people from having to suffer the disruption to their lives which is part and parcel of ECT.
What Are Other Advantages Of TMS?
Transcranial magnetic stimulation patients drive themselves to their appointments, and they drive themselves home. They do whatever they want to do, without restriction. They aren’t confused. During their TMS treatment they are wide awake, talking, and watching television. They have zero memory loss. Their tummy doesn’t bother them. Their sex lives don’t suffer.
Thousands of Americans agree – TMS is a real option to the medicines and ECT. In Georgia, TMS is achieving remarkable results.
Magnetic stimulation has been an altogether pleasant experience for most people who’ve experienced the therapy (over 15,000 in the US, and counting).
All things considered, we believe our Advanced TMS using the NeuroStar Therapy System is the best alternative treatment for depression in Augusta.
