- Ongoing support services optimize and sustain therapeutic benefits
An Overview of Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation
Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) utilizes concentrated magnetic fields to positively activate specific brain structures linked to mood regulation and depression.
TMS sessions involve sitting in a specialized reclining chair outfitted with an electromagnetic coil. This coil focuses magnetic pulses directed at key cortical areas tied to depressive symptoms. Patients remain awake and alert during the roughly 40-minute sessions.
The pulsed magnetic fields painlessly pass through the skull to stimulate neural tissue triggering the release of mood-elevating neurotransmitters like serotonin and dopamine. The reactivated brain regions resume more normal communication levels lessening depression.
TMS provides targeted stimulation of brain areas that medications struggle to access due to the blood-brain barrier. This enables TMS to successfully treat many psychiatric medication–resistant cases of depression.
Concierge TMS’s Implementation of NeuroStar TMS
Concierge TMS administers TMS utilizing NeuroStar TMS therapy. This advanced system features several optimized elements:
Proven effectiveness – Cleared by the FDA with over 4 million treatments performed showingsignificant patient improvement
Advanced magnetic coil – Iron core with contoured shape ensures consistent field depth for customized stimulation strength
Precision targeting – Bio-navigation positioning using individual MRI scans focuses on the exact cortical location linked to symptoms
Optimized protocols – Standardized amplitude, frequency and delivery efficiently provides neural activation
This blend of technological precision and empirical reliability allows Concierge TMS to leverage the NeuroStar system’s advantages safely treating medication-resistant depression. The innovative integration of bio-navigation and electromagnetic exposure guidance protects patient health while promoting neural recovery.
