Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation Therapy
Major depression is a debilitating brain disorder that affects one in 10 adults. It is caused by an imbalance of chemicals in the brain that result in a persistent state of sadness and loss of interest in or pleasure from normal activities. Individuals that have tried medications and psychotherapy to relieve their symptoms, with little or no success, often give up hope. The innovation of Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) can improve symptoms and give HOPE to those struggling to live their lives.
Nationally recognized as experts in the treatment of depression, Lindner Center of HOPE psychiatrists offer TMS as an innovative treatment modality that delivers positive results to patients coping with mental illness. TMS is a non-systemic and non-invasive treatment for depression that received the Prestigious Popular Science Award “Best of What’s New” in 2009.
What sets Lindner Center of HOPE apart from other TMS providers is our expertise in the treatment of depression. The Center’s uniqueness and success is a result of years of clinical research and experience in mental illness and its collaboration with academic centers such as Johns Hopkins and the Mayo Clinic through its involvement with the National Network of Depression Centers. Lindner Center of HOPE has the ability to stay abreast of and analyze new literature on advancements and new uses of TMS and not only conducts outcomes research but collaborates with academic centers who conduct additional research in the area of TMS. This collaboration enables the Center to harness current data and continuously look at ways it can be applied to benefit our patients.
For patients, this means the best of the best--the best clinical minds, the best data and the best technology is being applied to achieve successful outcomes.
