About Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) Therapy in New Orleans
Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) is an FDA-cleared, revolutionary and cutting-edge technology used to help treat Major Depressive Disorder in patients who have not received symptom relief from medication.
TMS does not enter the bloodstream, which drastically reduces side effects compared to traditional medication. This revolutionary treatment—that has been effectively treating Major Depression in patients around the world—is now available in the Greater New Orleans area.
