An effective treatment for depression that is quick, well tolerated and non-invasive.
If you’ve been diagnosed with major depressive disorder (MDD) and one or more antidepressant medications have not worked for you, Duluth TMS can help you achieve wellbeing.
With each therapy session lasting approximately 20 minutes, the treatment can fit easily into your schedule. The treatment has minimal side effects, and is covered by Medicare and most private payers.
How effective is BrainsWay D? In real-life clinical settings, the treatment was proven to be effective for 3 out of 4 patients, with a 51% remission rate and 75% response rate.
I have already tried other medications and had poor results- will BrainsWay D be any better? Studies have shown the treatment to be effective for patients with depression, no matter how many other medications were tried in the current depressive episode.
How does the treatment work? The treatment integrates seamlessly into your routine. During each session, you are comfortably seated on a chair and a cushioned helmet is placed over your head. The helmet uses magnetic fields to stimulate the targeted brain area and improve depressive symptoms. The procedure requires daily sessions of 30 minutes for 4-6 weeks. As the treatment does not require hospitalization or anesthesia, and entails no memory loss and systemic side effects, you can return to your normal routine after each session.
Does the treatment entail any discomfort? BrainsWay D is a non-invasive procedure, which eliminates the need for hospitalization. Patients may experience minor side effects such as headaches or minor pain at the site of treatment. However, this is usually brief and ceases after the first few sessions.
