TMS Therapy

TMS is a revolutionary treatment that directly targets the area in the brain that controls mood. 
Our practice uses one of the only two TMS machines currently FDA-cleared for the 3-minute Theta Burst Stimulation (TBS) treatment for Major Depressive Disorder.
In fact, with this “Express TMS” option, you can save between 9 and 20 hours over the course of the treatments.
TMS is revolutionizing the way that anxiety, depression, insomnia, and other conditions are being treated. Many of our patients who have tried other methods have found that the MagVenture™ treatments we offer at Cedar Park TMS are working quickly and effectively with little to no side effects.

Benefits of TMS

During each session, you will relax comfortably in a chair while you receive your treatment.
Repeated magnetic pulses are delivered into the parts of your brain that regulate your mood and are linked to depression. Decreased activities in those regions underlie mental imbalance and illness. TMS activates the nerve cells in those areas, bringing you relief from your symptoms of depression.

How does TMS work?

TMS is an excellent option for depression therapy. Symptom relief may take a few weeks of treatment. After completion of a TMS treatment series, standard care for depression ― such as medication and psychotherapy ― may be recommended as ongoing treatment.
If your symptoms improve with TMS, we will then discuss ongoing or maintenance treatment options for your depression with your primary doctor.
