How Does Deep TMS Work?

Our team at TMS Therapy Center is proud to offer BrainsWay Deep Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS), a groundbreaking new treatment technique that minimizes the symptoms of several mental health conditions. Deep TMS works by employing a magnetic field through uniquely shaped coils called H-Coils to influence the brain's neural activity, specifically, the areas of the brain associated with a patient's emotions. Numerous clinical studies have backed this FDA-cleared treatment for its safety and long-term effectiveness in adults up to age 65. For more information about BrainsWay Deep TMS, we invite you to call our Houston, TX practice today.

What Does Deep TMS Treat?

BrainsWay Deep TMS is one of seven TMS devices on the market today that has been FDA-cleared to treat major depressive disorder (MDD). In addition, BrainsWay Deep TMS has been approved by the FDA to treat obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), anxiety, and smoking cessation. There are new research studies on the efficacy of Deep TMS being developed every year, including many that have found it to be an effective treatment for attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Additional mental health and neurological conditions that can be treated with Deep TMS but that are still pending clearance by the FDA include:

  • Bipolar disorder
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Schizophrenia
  • Alzheimer’s disease (AD)
  • Autism
  • Chronic pain
  • Multiple sclerosis (MS)
  • Parkinson's disease
  • Post-stroke rehabilitation

Why Should I Refer Patients to Deep TMS?

At TMS Therapy Center in Houston, TX, we know that some patients may not respond well to psychotherapy or psychiatric medications, so we provide BrainsWay Deep TMS as an alternative form of treatment. Studies have found that 33% of patients with major depressive disorder (MDD) and 50 percent of patients with obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) have not been able to find relief through medications alone. That said, clinical studies have revealed that Deep TMS combined with psychiatric medication is considerably more effective at treating symptoms of depression.

About Us
What training is required for healthcare providers to offer Deep TMS?

If you're a healthcare provider interested in offering Deep TMS at your practice, it's essential to undergo specific training and certification to use BrainsWay Deep TMS devices. This training usually involves both theoretical understanding and hands-on experience with the technology. The goal is to ensure that providers are equipped to safely and effectively administer the treatment. Our team at TMS Therapy Center in Houston, TX, can offer guidance and resources for those interested in becoming certified.

How does Deep TMS integrate into a comprehensive mental health care plan?

For healthcare providers who already offer psychotherapy or medication management services, adding Deep TMS to your practice can significantly broaden the range of treatment options available to your patients. Deep TMS has shown to be particularly beneficial for those who have not responded well to traditional treatment methods. The treatment can easily be integrated into a comprehensive care plan that might include medication and psychotherapy, offering a more holistic approach to mental health care. 

Is there ongoing support and education available for providers offering Deep TMS?

Yes, continuing education and support are crucial elements for healthcare providers offering Deep TMS. This often includes updates on the latest clinical studies, advancements in technology, and best practices for patient care. It's important to stay abreast of the latest research and updates to offer the most current and effective treatments to your patients. We proudly offer ongoing support and educational resources to ensure providers are fully equipped to administer Deep TMS effectively.
