ABOUT THE PRESENTATION
Deep TMS is a non-invasive treatment which stimulates the brain region responsible for depression. It is an outpatient procedure which does not require hospitalization or anesthesia, and entails no memory loss or systemic side effects. Studies have shown that the treatment is effective for patients with Major Depressive Disorder and OCD, regardless of how many medications were tried in the current episode of depression or OCD. In the U.S., the Brainsway’s Deep TMS device has been FDA approved for the treatment of major depressive disorder (MDD) since 2013 and (OCD) since August 2018. Off Label, the studies have shown its effectiveness for the treatment of many other conditions, including Parkinson’s disease, auditory hallucinations associated with Schizophrenia, PTSD, Anxiety, Tinnitus, Migraine headaches. This workshop will provide a basic overview of Deep TMS.
