Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation

We are using the latest state of the art technology in treatment of mental health issues including TMS, what is it and how does it work?
We are one of the leading medical centres in the region that offer transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), which is a safe, well-tailored and non-invasive procedure. The medical device applies magnetic pulses to the brain through a magnetic coil held over the head. A magnetic field is generated by the TMS coil which goes through the head (skull) to the brain where it produces a stimulation of the brain. A specific pattern of the magnetic pulses is generated by the device which is replicated in the brain; the professionally adjusted and designed pattern can change brain function and be used to treat neurological and psychiatric disorders, such as depression, anxiety, obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), neuropathic pain and much more.

TMS works by not only modulating specific brain cells but also by changing the activity in the entire neural network affected in the given disorder. Typically, transcranial magnetic stimulation is used when other treatment methods have not been effective.

Where can we benefit from TMS?

TMS is FDA approved for depression and obsessive-compulsive disorder in individuals who failed at least one medication trial but there are several investigative uses and very strong and promising results of the use of other conditions that include:

  • Generalized anxiety disorder
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder
  • Bipolar disorder
  • Pain resulting from infections and diseases of the nerves.
  • Migraine
  • Difficulties in cognitive abilities and memory
  • Emotional and reward-based deficits
  • Addiction to alcohol
  • Addiction to smoking.
