Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS)

Summit Mental Health Clinic

Adult and Child Psychiatrist located in Austin, TX

We here at Summit Mental Health Clinic specialize in the holistic treatment of many mental health issues. As such, we have a variety of methods we use to tackle said problems. One of these methods is Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation, or TMS for short. Unlike Electro-Convulsive Therapy, TMS is a non-invasive, FDA approved procedure used as a remedy for treatment resistant Major Depressive Disorder, OCD, PTSD, anxiety, and addiction among many others. A painless magnetic pulse sent to the brain using an electromagnetic coil placed on the scalp stimulates an area of the brain that controls mood and depression. This process has been shown to reactivate regions of the brain that show decreased activity due to depression, essentially jump starting the brain back into action. All of this is achieved on site in the office using our very own Neurostar (TM) machine, with many insurance companies covering most if not all of the costs after prior authorizations are completed. If you have any additional questions feel free to reach out to the office for more details.
