what is neurostar tms therapy®?
NeuroStar TMS Therapy® is a non-systemic (does not circulate in the bloodstream throughout the body) and non-invasive (does not involve surgery) form of neuromodulation. It is used to treat patients who failed to benefit from prior antidepressant treatment.
How does neurostar tms® work?
NeuroStar TMS® stimulates nerve cells in an area of the brain that is linked to depression by delivering highly focused MRI-strength magnetic pulses. Patients being treated by NeuroStar TMS Therapy® do not require anesthesia or sedation and remain awake and alert. It is approximately a 40-minute outpatient procedure that is prescribed by a psychiatrist and performed in a psychiatrist’s office. The treatment is typically administered daily for 4-6 weeks.
