The more we know about TMS the better we like it.
Having transcranial magnetic stimulation available means we have the opportunity to help people we’ve previously been unable to help. Even with all the other methods, and repetitive efforts, there are a lot of hard to help people in most psychiatric practices. One psychiatrist recently wrote, “… more and more (this has been a trend for a very long time) my patients are train wrecks or they have problems they won’t fix or can’t fix. My patients are harder to treat than they used to be, and they demand more from my treatment of them….”
Help Is Available – TMS Is A Paradigm Shift In Treating Depression!
This is precisely why people should be jumping into a TMS chair. They are looking for answers. TMS is an intervention which is quite likely to be helpful, perhaps especially to people who are hard to treat with medications and other therapies. It offers them a treatment opportunity different from any therapy previously available. It’s new, it’s free of systemic side effects, and it works remarkably well in a high percentage of the patients for whom it is determined to be a treatment option.
A friend said,”You are the medical authority your patients trust. If you believe in TMS, I think it virtually a slam dunk that they will too. You did your due diligence on this technology; it’s time to get excited about the TMS chair and run with it.”
They’re right. Psychiatry is a long way from having all the answers, but we have significantly more answers now because we have this advanced technology which directly treats the brain with safe, magnetic pulses.
TMS gives us treatment options which weren’t previously available. We have seen it work in Augusta, and it’s not just something that works somewhere else, or in journal articles. Using magnetic brain stimulation means we can help people we used to be unable to help! At TMS Augusta we’re excited on behalf of our patients, and because it’s fun to see people get so much better all the sudden.
There are a lot of people in our backyard of Augusta, George, we can help with TMS. Many are folks we couldn’t help until we had this technology available. We think that’s pretty exciting!
