Transcranial magnetic stimulation is an innovative treatment that uses magnetic pulses to stimulate targeted portions of your brain.
TMS therapy helps impact the portions of your brain that are tied to mood regulation. Underactivity in these brain regions is tied to a wide range of mental health conditions.
As each targeted magnetic pulse stimulates the neurons in that part of your brain, it boosts activity in the area. This helps people experience dramatic relief from a wide variety of depressive and other symptoms with TMS treatment.
At New Dawn TMS Psychiatry, Dr. Beltagui uses MagVenture’s MagVita TMS Therapy, a cloud-based TMS machine that allows you to access your data securely from the cloud.
If you want to treat depression without medication, or you haven’t had success treating your mental health condition with other means, don’t hesitate to ask Dr. Beltagui if TMS is right for you.
During your TMS therapy, Dr. Beltagui places a metal coil around your head. This fires the TMS into your brain. This treatment is designed with your comfort in mind.
Although you may hear a loud clicking with each magnetic pulse and some patients report a headache during their first few treatments, you won’t need any anesthesia. You can continue on with your day immediately after your treatment.
Dr. Beltagui personalizes your TMS treatment plan to you. By the end of the treatment plan, most patients experience marked symptom relief.
Absolutely. In fact, it’s FDA-approved. Not only has the FDA cleared it for the treatment of mental health disorders like depression, but they have also approved it for the treatment of migraines.
