TRANSCRANIAL MAGNETIC STIMULATION

A MUCH MORE EFFICIENT TREATMENT

The accelerated TMS protocol is able to condense 6 weeks of treatment into 5 days

BASED ON NEW THETA BURST STIMULATION

It is developed and based on the rhythms of the hippocampus and cerebral cortex which lead to long term change (LTP)

PROFOUND RAPID EFFECT IN INTRACTABLE DEPRESSION

Results from the double-blind sham control trial indicate 79% remission rates without serious adverse events

At The Anxiety Center we are committed to providing our patients cutting edge interventional psychiatry procedures as as they become available and demonstrated to be safe and effective for our patients. Accelerated TMS is an exciting emerging  TMS application also known as the Stanford Neuromodulation Therapy (SNT also formerly known as SAINT) that was developed by Nolan Williams, MD and his team at Stanford University. This treatment development was guided by research on brain physiology and distributed neural networks. Based on current finding researches in the study used an fcMRI to locate the area of the left dorsolateral prefrontal cortex most negative connectivity to the subgenual cingulate. That area of the brain was then targeted using the MagPro X100 system (MagVenture A/S Denmarl) along with a Localite neuronavigation system (Localite GmbH, Sankt Augustin, Germany) to help position the coil accurately.  iTBS sessions were given for 10 minutes, 10 times per day for 5 days. Results from the study indicated that 79% of patients achieved depression remission over the course of the study.  Although these results are exciting we are currently in discussion with our medical team on when this protocol might be safely offered to our patients.
