Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder
Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation Therapy
A New Treatment Option for Depression
Do you or a loved one struggle with depression or obsessive-compulsive disorder? Has your medication provided you with little to no relief from your symptoms or do the side effects impact your daily life? MagVenture Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) Therapy could be the solution for you.
What is TMS therapy?
TMS is a non-invasive treatment where magnetic pulses are delivered to stimulate nerve cells in the part of the brain that controls mood. This area is often underactive in patients with depression. Repeated stimulation of this part of the brain has proven to produce an anti-depressant effect on people suffering from depression. TMS is available to adult patients who have failed to receive satisfactory improvement from prior antidepressant medication in their current episode.
Does TMS have side effects?
TMS treatment is without the side effects typically experienced with antidepressants such as weight gain and sexual dysfunction. TMS may, for some, cause headaches or nausea, but patients are typically able to resume their daily activities right after treatment. Please note that TMS therapy is a medical procedure and any side effects experienced during or after receiving the therapy should be reported to Dr. Ahmed.
Is TMS covered by insurance?
TMS is reimbursed by most insurance providers. Their policies may, however, vary. Pre-authorization, greater requirements, (MS, CCMA, RNP, RN, etc.), number of drug failures, to name a few, can impact claim approvals. Please ask our staff for any questions regarding insurance or refer to your insurer’s policy guidelines.
