About

TMS in Queens! Depression is a serious medical illness affecting more than 14 million American adults every year. It results in a persistent state of sadness that may interfere with an individual’s thoughts, behavior, mood, and physical health. Traditionally, Depression is treated with medication. Although antidepressants can be effective for many patients, they do not work for everyone. Some patients find they are unable to tolerate side effects associated with medication. For these patients, TriState TMS offers the new way back from depression and its treatment side effects.
NeuroStar Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) for the treatment of depression is a short outpatient procedure that we utilize. It uses pulsed magnetic fields to stimulate nerve cells within the area of the brain thought to control mood. TMS Therapy is performed under the supervision of a psychiatrist while the patient remains awake and alert.
Major Depressive Disorder can be treated using TMS therapy. The typical treatment course consists of 5 treatments per week over a 4-6 week period for 20-30 treatments. The treating clinician positions a treatment coil over the left prefrontal cortex, the part of the brain thought to be involved with mood regulation. Visit www.tristatetms.com to learn more.
