DEPRESSION TREATMENT

Depression affects over 300 million people worldwide and researchers believe that by 2020 it will be the second leading cause of disability.

Expert TMS is able to offer patients rTMS, a safe and ground-breaking treatment for Clinical Depression. The depression treatment uses magnetic stimulation to target the part of the brain that regulates mood. It is a very effective treatment that often succeeds when drugs have failed, as a method of reducing or eliminating the symptoms of Depression. Often patients do not receive adequate benefit from antidepressants and/or cannot tolerate the side effects caused by them.

Treatment

Stimulation of the prefrontal cortex by rTMS in patients with depression can lead to complete remission from depression. Patients reporting that they feel much more positive; they are more sociable, motivated and talkative.

The depression treatment protocol as outlined by NICE is typically 2-6 weeks. We have developed treatment protocols which allow for multiple treatments per day, allowing for the full treatment to be delivered in between five days up to six weeks, at the patient’s discretion. Patients will be assessed over the course of treatment to monitor the effect. The actual length of the treatment will vary dependent on how quickly a reduction in the depression level is seen.  

 

Evidence

Approximately 58% of patients with treatment resistant depression respond positively to TMS therapy, <37% of patients achieve complete remission.
