Living with depression can be challenging, but there is hope for a brighter future. At Oasis Therapeutics, we offer NeuroStar Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS), a cutting-edge treatment that has transformed the lives of many individuals struggling with depression.
What is NeuroStar TMS?
NeuroStar TMS is a non-invasive and FDA-approved treatment for depression. It utilizes magnetic pulses to stimulate specific areas of the brain associated with depression. By targeting these regions, NeuroStar TMS helps restore brain activity, regulate mood, and alleviate depressive symptoms.
What to Expect During NeuroStar TMS Treatment:
Evaluation and Treatment Planning: Before starting NeuroStar TMS, you will undergo a comprehensive evaluation by our psychiatrist, Dr. Santharam Yadati at Oasis Therapeutics. He will assess your symptoms, medical history, and treatment goals to develop a personalized treatment plan.
Treatment Sessions: NeuroStar TMS sessions are conducted in our comfortable and relaxing treatment room. You will be seated in a chair, and a small, magnetic coil will be placed gently against your scalp. The coil delivers magnetic pulses to stimulate the targeted brain areas. Each session typically lasts 20 minutes, and you can resume your daily activities immediately afterward.
Frequency and Duration: NeuroStar TMS treatment typically involves multiple sessions scheduled over several weeks. The exact frequency and duration will depend on your individual needs and the treatment plan determined by your provider. Our team will closely monitor your progress throughout the treatment period.
