Ventre Medical Center, a leader in depression treatment, offers Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS), a non-invasive, outpatient brain stimulation therapy for patients with treatment-resistant depression.

This FDA-approved therapy uses magnetic fields to stimulate the area of the brain thought to be responsible for mood disorders. TMS is clinically proven as effective and it lacks the side effects common with antidepressants or electroconvulsive therapy.

Our TMS program is made up of a team of highly trained psychiatrists and allied health professionals who have years of clinical experience treating depression. Together, they offer hope for the vast majority of patients who do not respond to conventional depression treatment. At Ventre Medical Associates, our mission is to ensure the highest quality TMS therapy with the goal of maximizing success for patients struggling with major depression, so they can live the full life they desire.

Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) Therapy is a noninvasive, non-pharmaceutical therapy that uses magnetic waves to stimulate the part of the brain responsible for depression.

What is TMS?

TMS is a safe and effective treatment for major depression and major depressive disorder.

Transcranial magnetic stimulation and therapy is an FDA-approved, noninvasive treatment for people with major depression who have not benefited from antidepressant medications. TMS and deep TMS are available by prescription only and are delivered under the supervision of a board-certified psychiatrist. TMS targets the key area in the brain that controls mood, the prefrontal cortex. This area is known to be underactive when someone is suffering from major depression. Using focused magnetic pulses to stimulate that area, TMS restores normal function and reduces the symptoms of depression.

Clinical trials have proved the effectiveness of TMS in treating patients with major depression. One out of two patients improved significantly, and one out of three patients was free of depression symptoms completely.
