Under the guiding hand of Dr. Daniela White, the Midtown TMS Treatment Center Houston, provides patients in Houston, Texas and the surrounding area of Southeast Texas with the latest in depression treatments.
We are pleased to be able to offer Neurostar® TMS Therapy to our patients. Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation Therapy is one of the most technologically advanced depression treatments available. This non-invasive, outpatient therapy is FDA cleared since 2008 and has helped thousands of depression patients who have not received adequate results from antidepressants.
An advantage of TMS treatment is that it is non-invasive and, unlike medication, has few side effects. These might include discomfort or mild pain in the scalp area, at the site of treatment. Some people experience headaches. Our experience has been that very few patients drop out of treatment because of pain.
The treatment for patients involves sitting in a dentist-like chair in the doctor's office with a large magnet pressed to the left side of their head. The machine produces a pulsed magnetic field, similar to that used in M.R.I.'s, which creates an electrical current in the surface of the brain that "resets" the patient's mood regulatory system.
In our Houston TMS Treatment Center, patients who have had a full course of TMS treatment oftentimes receive occasional treatments, and many say that the therapy has pulled them out of severe long-term depression.
There is no anesthesia or sedation needed and the patient is allowed to read or watch TV.
