NeuroStar uses transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) to target key areas of the brain that are underactive in people with depression. It is not ECT (electroconvulsive therapy). While the exact cause of depression is not known, the leading scientific theory is that it is caused by an imbalance of the brain’s neurotransmitters, which are chemical messengers that send signals between brain cells.



NeuroStar TMS Q & A

What is NeuroStar TMS?

During a NeuroStar treatment session, a magnet similar in strength to thatused in a magnet resonance imaging (MRI) machine is used to stimulate nerve cells in the area of the brain thought to control mood. These magnet pulses may have a positive effect on the brain’s neurotransmitter levels, making long – term remission possible.

Treatment with NeuroStar Advanced Therapy is easy:

  • Therapy sessions are conducted in your NeuroStar doctor’s office
  • You can return to normal activities right away
  • You are awake during treatment
  • There are no negative effects on memory or sleep
  • It’s covered by most health insurance plans, including Medicare and Tricare.

With more than three million treatment delivered, this novel treatment approach to achievement remission is bringing new hope to people every day.

Does NeuroStar TMS work?

In a study of “real-world” outcomes, 83% of people who completed the full NeuroStar treatment cycle experienced a measurable decrease in the severity of their depression, and 62% of those completing treatment saw full remission – meaning their depression effectively “went away.”

Does NeuroStar TMS hurt?

While there may be some minor discomfort at the treatment site (where the device touches your head), it generally subsides within the first week or treatment. There is no sedation, or impact on your alertness. You can read or talk with your treatment coordinator during your session, and you can drive home immediately after treatment.
