Deep Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (dTMS)

We offer Non-Pharmacological Treatment options for various neuropsychiatric disorders in addition to conventional treatment. We are particularly proud to be the only provider of deep Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (dTMS) therapy in the Central Valley. Deep TMS is an outpatient procedure that has been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the treatment of Depression.

Deep TMS has also been used successfully for patients diagnosed with OCD, anxiety, and bipolar disorder and even those who wish to quit smoking. During the procedure, the patient sits comfortably in a chair and remains awake and alert. A dTMS treatment coil is placed over the left prefrontal cortex. Highly concentrated magnetic fields turn on and off repetitively in a defined pattern to regulate the neuron activities of the targeted brain structure. The treatment session itself lasts about 20 to 40 minutes, but we will spend a few minutes to position the patient comfortably. The patients can resume their routine activities right after the procedure!
