What is Neurostar TMS?

Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) by NeuroStar is a modern approach to mental health and other neurological conditions. NeuroStar TMS offers a non-invasive and drug-free alternative to improving a patient’s mental well-being, especially for those who haven’t had positive experiences with traditional methods.

With focused magnetic fields, TMS stimulates specific regions of the brain that play a crucial role in the condition and symptoms you may be experiencing. The magnetic pulses utilized by TMS offer pain-free help in restoring dormant neural pathways to help alleviate symptoms of depression and other conditions.

What is the process like after my first visit?

Throughout your NeuroStar TMS treatment, you may start noticing positive changes in your symptoms and overall mental well-being. While individual responses may vary, it is important to remember that TMS is a cumulative therapy. The benefits build with each treatment over time, and optimal results are often achieved with consistent and continued treatment.

As you progress through your NeuroStar TMS treatment, our experienced team will closely monitor your response and make any necessary adjustments for your unique therapy experience. Your NeuroStar TMS Psychiatrist will provide support while you progress. We strive to achieve the best possible outcomes for your mental health and well-being.

Frequently Asked Questions
WHAT IS NEUROSTAR?
NeuroStar is a safe, effective non-drug depression treatment that uses focused magnetic pulses, similar in strength to an MRI, to revitalize connections in an area of the brain involved in regulating mood. When these connections are reawakened, many people experience measurable relief from their depression.

Does NeuroStar actually work?
In a study of “real-world” outcomes (meaning actual NeuroStar patients), 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 the NeuroStar procedure 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 of treatment. There is no sedation, or impact on your alertness. You can read, watch TV, or talk with your treatment coordinator during your session, and you can drive home immediately after treatment.
Does insurance cover NeuroStar?
Over 300 million people have insurance plans that cover NeuroStar, including Medicare and Tricare. Conditions and coverage can vary by insurance company, and your NeuroStar Team Lead will help you determine your benefits and coverage. We also offer cash-pay and patient financing options if desired, talk with your NeuroStar representative for more details.
