TMS therapy is available at both the Omaha and Lincoln locations.
Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) provides an FDA approved safe, effective treatment option for people suffering from treatment resistant depression. It has also been effectively used for several other disorders including pain management, tinnitus, bipolar depression and anxiety. TMS sends rapid magnetic pulses to the left pre-frontal cortex, a mood controlling area of the brain. A patient sits in a special cushioned chair for the non-invasive treatment that requires no anesthesia and no down time. The typical course of treatment is 37-40 minutes 5 times a week for 6 weeks.
Dr. Duffy explained that people who are not getting effective results from antidepressant medication or do not want to take medications can benefit from Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation.
Dr. Duffy and his entire TMS team looks forward to making a positive change in the lives of future TMS patients.
