What Our Patients Are Saying

Why Dr Zawadzki Chose to Add TMS to His Practice

It became quite evident in the early stages of my career that some patients just would not respond adequately to the antidepressants that they had tried. Others would feel a bit better, but would not respond to a degree that they would like. Still others would experience intolerable side effects

This led to some patients suffering from anxiety and depression with few other options that were simply not medication based. Promises of novel antidepressants have been exciting, but slow to come to fruition.

TMS (Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation) offered an opportunity for these patients to be treated without the usual burdens of endless medication trials. TMS directed treatment straight at the source – an area of the brain known to be underactive in depression.

In most cases, TMS focuses a beam of magnetic energy at a part of the brain called the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex (DLPLC), forcing it to ‘wake up’ and begin functioning more normally once again. This is what helps the patients feel better. A series of treatments will focus this energy so that the brain re-learns how to activate normally, resulting in less depression and sensation of improved well-being.

Because there are no medications involved in TMS, it is particularly useful for those patients who have only a partial response to medications, or cannot take antidepressant medications for one reason or another.

Why Neurostar?

The original FDA approval trials for treatment-resistant depression were established on the Neurostar TMS machine. The Neurostar has demonstrated reliability and efficacy and is considered the “gold standard” in TMS treatment machines. For this reason, we use Neurostar in our practice.

NeuroStar TMS

NeuroStar uses transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) to target key areas of the brain that are underactive in people with depression. It is not ECT (electroconvulsive therapy).

While the exact cause of depression is not known, the leading scientific theory is that it is caused by an imbalance of the brain’s neurotransmitters, which are chemical messengers that send signals between brain cells.

Before Treatment

You’ll recline comfortably in the treatment chair. A small, curved magnetic coil will be positioned lightly head

After Treatment

Depending on your doctor’s recommendation,each treatment takes between 19 and 27 minutes

What is NeuroStar Advanced Therapy (TMS)?

During a NeuroStar treatment session, a magnet similar in strength to that used in a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) machine is used to stimulate nerve cells in the area of the brain thought to control mood. These magnetic pulses may have a positive effect on the brain’s neurotransmitter levels, making long-term remission possible.
