This innovative approach to achieving remission is bringing hope to people every day.
What is NeuroStar Advanced Therapy?
The FDA cleared the device for transcranial magnetic stimulation. It uses a magnetic field that is similar to what is used in anMRI machine. The brain of people with depression is less active than other people. This method is not done in a hospital. ECT has side effects, but not of the kind that NeuroStar has.
Half of those who complete the 6-week course of Neurostar Advanced Therapy will be completely free from depression and almost all will experience a significant reduction in their symptoms. Patients who have tried everything else are given hope by the fact that recovery is possible.
