Transcranial Magnetic Simulation

Why select TAC for your treatment?

Non-invasive With low side effects

TMS is an outpatient procedure that is well-tolerated for the majority of patients

FDA Cleared for Depression, OCD & Anxiety

TMS was FDA cleared for depression in 2008 and more recently for OCD and anxiety in depression

Covered by Most Private Providers

Most insurances will provide reimbursement for TMS as an second-line treatment

Our Approach

At TAC we are committed to providing our patients with evidenced-based interventional psychiatry procedures as part of our continuum of integrated supports. TMS has been recommended by the American Psychiatric Association since 2010 and FDA cleared since 2008 for the treatment of major depressive disorder. In 2020 Deep TMS was also cleared for treatment of obsessive compulsive disorder, and most recently anxiety in depression. Our clinic has both the MagVenture and Brainsway TMS machines ensuring our patients the widest range of FDA approved TMS treatments in the region. Our focus is the utilization of the most effective TMS technology in psychiatric medicine for depression, anxiety, and obsessive compulsive disorder. TMS works by delivering a series of repetitive, brief and highly focused magnetic pulses, used to stimulate specific neural networks in the brain associated with the condition being treated. This stimulation and strengthening these neural pathways helps restore more balanced brain activity. By coming to The Anxiety Center, you can be sure that you or your loved one will receive compassionate and effective care from experts committed to helping you achieve the best possible outcome.

The Difference

The Best Tech in the Region

At The Anxiety Center have access to the best Tech in the region.

01.

BrainsWay

BrainsWay's flagship advanced technology, Deep TMS, is revolutionizing mental health, neurological, physiotherapeutic, and speech therapy treatment. This non-invasive deep brain stimulation device uses magnetic pulses to activate nerve cells in the brain, without pain or seizures, and without the need for anesthesia sedation. The penetrating magnetic fields have the ability to modulate altered neural circuits in various diseases, offering a promising new avenue in the therapy of mental and neurological disorders.

02.

MagVenture

At MagVenture, we have been pioneering non-invasive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) technology for over 30 years with a passion for improving people's lives. Collaborating with thousands of researchers, we have expanded knowledge of the human brain in fields such as psychiatry, neurophysiology, neurology, neuroplasticity, cognitive neuroscience, and rehabilitation. Leveraging our expertise, we've developed clinical TMS systems and recently introduced Magnetic Peripheral Nerve Stimulation (mPNS) solutions. Proudly a privately-owned Danish company, our products undergo design, development, production, and quality testing in Denmark to the highest standards. With subsidiaries in the USA, Brazil, the UK, China, and Germany, and distribution in over 70 countries, our impact is global.

Think Outside the Pillbox

Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) offers a compelling alternative to traditional medication-based approaches for various mental health conditions due to several key advantages. Unlike medications, TMS does not involve systemic drug exposure, thus minimizing the risk of side effects such as weight gain, sexual dysfunction, or gastrointestinal disturbances commonly associated with pharmacological treatments. Additionally, TMS is non-invasive and well-tolerated, typically causing minimal discomfort during the procedure and requiring no anesthesia. Importantly, TMS offers targeted stimulation to specific regions of the brain implicated in psychiatric disorders, facilitating personalized treatment approaches and potentially enhancing efficacy compared to broad-acting medications. Furthermore, TMS can be a viable option for individuals who have not responded adequately to medication or who seek alternatives to long-term pharmacotherapy. Overall, TMS represents a promising therapeutic avenue that addresses limitations of medication-based treatments, offering a safer, more precise, and potentially more effective approach for managing mental health conditions.

Accelerated TMS

We prioritize offering the latest and safest interventional psychiatry treatments. An emerging advancement we're exploring is Accelerated TMS, known as Stanford Neuromodulation Therapy (SNT, formerly SAINT), developed at Stanford University. This innovative approach, underpinned by research on brain physiology and neural networks, utilizes targeted Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation. It involves identifying specific brain areas using advanced imaging techniques, followed by intensive, focused treatment sessions. Initial studies show promising results, with a significant percentage of participants achieving depression remission. While these outcomes are encouraging, we we integrate this protocol into our practice on a case-by-case basis, ensuring it aligns with our commitment to providing effective, evidence-based care for our patients.

Accelerated TMS

A much more Efficient Treatment

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

Based on new Theta Brust Simulation

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
