Question: What is TMS Psychiatry and what are the advantages?

While most psychiatric patients are familiar with psychotherapy and medications, they may not be as familiar with TMS (transcranial magnetic stimulation) Psychiatry. TMS is a noninvasive procedure that uses magnetic fields to stimulate the brain to improve symptoms of depression and OCD. Clinical trials are also underway for additional brain disorders. TMS is typically used when other treatments have proven to be ineffective for mental health patients.

Providing patients with another option, BrainsWay – utilizing an innovative TMS technology – offers a non-invasive, efficacious, and well-tolerated treatment that activates deep brain structures using directed electromagnetic fields which generate excitation or inhibition of neurons inside the brain. BrainsWay represents the next-generation of TMS Psychiatry treatment for depression and OCD, achieving outcomes not thought possible with traditional medical solutions.

The Advantages of BrainsWay’s TMS Psychiatry

The advantages of TMS psychiatry – specifically BrainsWay’s FDA-cleared therapies for MDD and OCD – are the following:

Deep-TMS for MDD

BrainsWay D is successfully transforming the lives of patients suffering from Major Depressive Disorder (MDD). The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) cleared BrainsWay’s Deep TMS device for the treatment of depression in patients who failed to respond to antidepressant medications in their current episode of depression. BrainsWay D is effective even in treatment resistant depression. Individuals who failed to achieve relief for MDD using existing treatments may finally find relief with BrainsWay D. The safety and efficacy of depression therapy with BrainsWay’s device have been demonstrated extensively in clinical trials. Patients now have the option of receiving a comfortable, noninvasive treatment without the need for anesthesia or hospitalization, allowing them to preserve their quality of life.
