YOU FROM WHAT’S IMPORTANT.
Every connection matters.
Depression disconnects you from what matters. Family and friends. Your passions. Your life. Some mood disorders can permanently disengage parts of your brain, making it hard to see the way out. Advanced Neurology Epilepsy and Sleep Center uses Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS), a uniquely better, non-invasive treatment for reconnecting your neural networks.
TMS safely uses MRI strength pulses to strengthen and enhance the neural networks often associated with depression. Using magnetic pulses to stimulate parts of the brain related to mood, this treatment can also allow people to limit their pain, their compulsions addictions and other pathways that may be dysfunctional.
TMS safely treats the neurological cause of depression: disengaged neural pathways.
The FDA has approved TMS devices for patients 22 and older, suffering from Major Depressive Disorder who have failed to receive satisfactory improvement from antidepressant medication in the current episode. The American Psychiatric Association’s best practices for the treatment of depression recommends to use TMS after the first line of medication.
RTMS HAS ALSO BEEN USED OFF-LABEL BY CLINICAL RESEARCHERS TO TREAT:
● Anxiety Disorder
● Adolescent Depression
● Autism Spectrum Disorder
● Bipolar Depression
● Cognitive Decline
● Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD)
● Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
● Sleep Disorders
● Post Stroke Rehab
Dr Aamr Arif Herekar has done training in TMS treatments from Harvard University. He is also using the latest theta burst techniques that significantly shorten the duration of the therapies while providing longer effects.
Please call the Advance Neurology Epilepsy and Sleep Center if you want to know more about the off label treatment options with TMS.
Coming soon, transcranial direct and alternating current stimulation for added affects.
