Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) Therapy is a safe, painless treatment for depression and certain other conditions without the use of medications. TMS uses brief, MRI strength magnetic pulses to stimulate the parts of the brain associated with the symptoms of the illness. Unlike medications, which act throughout the entire body, TMS does not cause side effects such as weight gain or sexual dysfunction. TMS can be effective even if you have failed to respond to antidepressant medications. Unlike other treatments, such as electro-convulsive therapy (ECT), TMS does not cause cognitive side effects or memory problems. No anesthesia or sedation is used, so you can drive yourself to and from treatment and even go back to work or school right after a treatment. There is no need to disrupt your usual routine.
Currently TMS is covered by most major insurance companies as well as Kaiser Permanente with a Kaiser physician referral. Our case-managers are specially trained to present your needs in an attmept to get TMS covered by your insurance. Learn more.
