Today, millions are treated for depression. Unfortunately, for many people, treating depression with
antidepressants either doesn't work or causes unpleasant side effects. If you have symptoms of
depression or have been diagnosed with Major Depressive Disorder, Dr. Craig Vine offers Transcranial
Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) at Psych Recovery, Inc., and it is as a viable alternative treatment for
depression without using traditional depression medication that may cause unwanted side effects.
TMS Therapy gives new hope for recovery from depression.
Dr. Vine now offers TMS therapy using an advanced new medical device called the NeuroStar TMS Therapy
System. It is a safe and effective alternative to antidepressant medication for treating depression.
TMS has been proven in clinical trials as a safe and effective alternative treatment for all types of
depression. The FDA-approved (in October 2008) NeuroStar TMS Therapy® has shown positive results in
treating patients suffering from major depressive disorder, all of whom had not reported satisfactory
improvement with previous antidepressant medication.
What to Expect
Your NeuroStar TMS Therapy® treatment session is a short outpatient procedure lasting less than 40
minutes, where you can relax in the treatment chair in a comfortable setting. This non-invasive,
alternative depression treatment doesn't require anesthesia or sedation so you can immediately return
to your normal routine, including driving.
A typical course of TMS treatment occurs 5 days a week for 4 to 6 weeks. The length of treatment may
depend on how you respond to the therapy. Keep in mind that TMS therapy does not work immediately, while
some patients may show improvement after only 2 weeks, others with longstanding depression may require
more than 6 weeks of treatment.
As every patient is different and experiences different symptoms of depression, seeing Dr. Vine for an in
depth consultation is the best way to determine whether or not TMS is the most appropriate treatment for
you. Dr. Vine's assessment includes reviewing the patient's symptoms and treatment history, discussing
their treatment goals, and how TMS may help them to reach those goals.
Our treatment philosophy is simply that every person is unique, and each consultation is treated as such.
