In Heisu Research CRO we conduct the Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) Innovation treatment for Depression disorders, Sleep Disorder, Anxiety Disorders and more.
Transcranial magnetic stimulation, or TMS, is a safe, effective, and noninvasive form of brain stimulation. Approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 2008, TMS devices operate outside of the body and use powerful magnetic fields to stimulate nerve cells in specific areas of the brain to improve symptoms of depression and anxiety. TMS therapy is indicated for individuals diagnosed with Major Depressive Disorder (MDD) who have not achieved satisfactory symptom improvement from antidepressant medications and therapy. TMS therapy is often used in individuals who are unable to tolerate side effects from antidepressant medications such as weight gain and sexual dysfunction; however, TMS can be used alone or in conjunction with medications. TMS does not require anesthesia and patients may resume daily activities right after treatment.
Heisu Research is currently working providing treatments by a psychiatrist. Although TMS has been studied for a number of psychiatric and neurologic conditions, at this time HRG treats individuals who suffer from severe and/or recurrent major depressive disorder with positives results.
Prospective patients will meet with a TMS provider in our medical office for an initial consultation to discuss your psychiatric history, determine appropriateness for TMS treatment, and to learn more about our TMS therapy. The initial course of treatment typically consists of 5 treatments per week over a 4–6-week period, for an average of 25-35 total treatments. Each treatment session lasts approximately 20-40 minutes. During treatment, the patient is awake in a comfortable chair. A small magnetized wand rests lightly on the patient’s head, delivering focused magnetic stimulation directly to the area of the brain thought to be involved in regulating mood.
