About Depression and How TMS
Therapy Can Help

About NeuroStar TMS Therapy

The exact cause of depression is still undetermined. However, the leading scientific theory is that depression is triggered by an imbalance of neurotransmitters in the brain, which are chemical messengers that deliver information between brain cells.

NeuroStar uses transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) to activate parts of the brain that are underactive in patients experiencing depression. TMS therapy is not the same as ECT (electroconvulsive therapy).

TMS Clinical Trials & Academic Studies

Results: TMS is an effective treatment for those unable to benefit from initial antidepressant medication

Carpenter LL, et al. (2012). Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) for Major Depression: A Multisite, Naturalistic, Observational Study of Acute Treatment Outcomes in Clinical Practice. Depression and Anxiety, 29(7):587-596. www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22689344

Conclusion: Daily left prefrontal rTMS as monotherapy produced statistically significant and clinically meaningful antidepressant therapeutic effects greater than sham.

Results: TMS demonstrates a statistically and clinically meaningful durability of acute benefit over 12 months of follow-up.

Transcranial magnetic stimulation was effective in treating major depression with minimal side effects reported. It offers clinicians a novel alternative for the treatment of this disorder.

How NeuroStar TMS Therapy™ Works

Here’s what you can expect from a NeuroStar Advanced Therapy (TMS) session at the Holiner Group:

Before Treatment

Sit back comfortably in a recliner chair. A curved magnetic coil will be positioned lightly on your head.

During Treatment

NeuroStar delivers focused magnetic stimulation directly to the target areas of the brain. You’ll hear a clicking sound and feel a tapping sensation on your head.

After Treatment

NeuroStar Advanced Therapy: Depending on your doctor’s recommendation, each treatment takes between 19 and 37 minutes.

You can resume normal activities immediately. Because there are no effects on memory, sleep, or alertness, you can drive yourself to and from treatment sessions. NeuroStar TMS Therapy in-office treatment takes 19-37 minutes and is administered 5 days a week for approximately 4-6 weeks.*
