Welcome to TMS Center of Southern Illinois.
We are pleased to be able to offer Neurostar TMS Therapy. Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation Therapy is one of the most Technologically advanced depression treatments available.
TMS (Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation) uses a targeted pulse magnetic field, similar to what is used in MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) machine to treat depression. While the patient is awake and alert, NeuroStar TMS Therapy stimulates areas of the brain that are underactive in depression.
Transcranial magnetic stimulation(TMS) is a noninvasive procedure that uses magnetic fields to small region of the brain to improve symptoms of depression. The pulse of magnetic stimulation causes the neuron to depolarize and send signals to the areas of brain which are affected by depression.
TMS therapy is a FDA-cleared safe and effective non-pharmacological depression treatment for patients who didn’t respond to standard drug therapy.
TMS Therapy is only available by prescription. A doctor can help decide if Neurostar TMS therapy is right for you.
You do not have to be a patient of our practice to receive the Neurostar TMS therapy. Your Physician or psychiatrist can refer you to our clinic for TMS therapy for depression.
