Welcome to the TMS Institute of Ohio in Sandusky, Ohio. We provide patients in Northern Ohio and the surrounding area with the latest in depression treatments. We are pleased to be able to offer Neurostar® Advanced Therapy to our patients. Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation Therapy is one of the most technologically advanced depression treatments available. This non-invasive, outpatient therapy is FDA cleared and has helped thousands of depression patients who have not received adequate results from antidepressants.
Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) uses a targeted pulsed magnetic field, similar to what is used in an MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) machine. While the patient is awake and alert, NeuroStar Advanced Therapy stimulates areas of the brain that are underactive in depression.
“TMS has been a real-life saver for me. Before TMS, I was struggling with really severe depression and it was making things hard for me to do. I used to think that I was a failure and that I was better off dead. My depression was hurting me and causing me to distance myself from everyone. I had tried antidepressants multiple times, but they weren’t helping my depression at all. There were side effects of the antidepressants that would just knock me down instead of helping. I’m glad that I found TMS and that it helped me. My depression and anxiety are less than they were before TMS. I can function better now and I’m grateful for that. If it wasn’t for TMS, I don’t know where I would be right now. If you’re looking to get help for your depression, I highly suggest TMS. It is a great program and the doctors are very supportive. In conclusion, I am very glad that I did TMS because it really helped me to feel better and helped me to think clearly. “
