Candidates for NeuroStar TMS Therapy in Sarasota

Many patients who present with mental health conditions struggle with issues surrounding their medication: they do not achieve relief, may achieve only temporary relief, or experience negative or unpleasant side effects from their medication. People diagnosed with major depressive disorder (MDD), obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), or major depressive disorder with anxious depression and who are looking for alternative treatments should consider exploring NeuroStar Advanced TMS Therapy, which we offer at our Sarasota clinic.

NeuroStar Advanced TMS Therapy is a transcranial electromagnetic stimulation treatment for qualifying adult patients. It is non-invasive and non-surgical, and does not require medication.

What Conditions Does NeuroStar Treat?

NeuroStar is an indicated treatment for the following mental health conditions in adult patients:

Many adult patients in Sarasota who experience these conditions may qualify for NeuroStar TMS Therapy. However, even if someone meets the criteria, there are some nuances with treatment eligibility that are best answered by a medical specialist. When someone has questions about their qualifications, they should speak to a medical professional.

Who Is Not Eligible for NeuroStar?

While many people might be eligible for NeuroStar, not every patient is a good candidate. NeuroStar Advanced TMS Therapy is not recommended for people in Sarasota who have non-removable conductive metal or stimulator implants in or near their head. People who have active or inactive implants may also not be ideal candidates: These implants could include, but are not limited to, deep brain stimulators, cochlear implants, and vagus nerve stimulators. TMS is also not recommended for patients who are pregnant.

Why NeuroStar Advanced TMS Therapy May Be Right for You

In Sarasota, NeuroStar Advanced TMS Therapy may be the right treatment option for a person who experiences MDD, OCD, or MDD with anxious depression—yet they have not achieved success with traditional medications for these conditions. Many TMS therapy patients have not found success with medication, switched medications, or experienced side effects from their medications that prohibit them from achieving relief. Often, a patient who approaches a clinician offering TMS is seeking an alternative treatment that is not medicinal.

Clinicians typically perform TMS treatments in their office; one session of treatment runs 20 minutes, after which a patient can return to their regular daily routine. Many patients who were previously unsuccessful with traditional medication were able to find lasting relief through TMS therapy.
