What is Neurostar TMS?

APP Health Group proudly offers TMS Therapy at our New Rochelle (Westchester, NY) Center!

TMS (transcranial magnetic stimulation) is a non-invasive treatment for patients with severe major depression, anxiety, and OCD who have not benefited from antidepressant medications or therapy.

How Effective is Neurostar TMS?

Neurostar TMS showed an impressive 62% response rate and 83% remission rate according to a 2020 study by Sackeim et al.

Response rate is the amount of patients who found a 50+% improvement in depression symptoms, while remission rate is the number of patients whose depression symptoms were completely gone by the end of treatment.

Does Neurostar TMS Hurt?

For most patients, Neurostar TMS is a very tolerable outpatient treatment. During TMS sessions, the patient is constantly awake and alert without anesthesia or sedation. When the device contacts your head during treatment, you can experience some slight discomfort but this usually goes away over the first week. During your session, watch TV, listen to music, or interact with your TMS treater. Directly after treatment, you can go back to your regular daily activities including driving.

Is Neurostar TMS Covered by Insurance?

Neurostar TMS is covered by most major insurance companies to treat severe depression. Even if we’re not in-network with your insurance, we can usually negotiate with them to be able to treat you at our office!

How It Works

The most current research believes depression is caused by problems with brain circuits, not a chemical imbalance. Neurostar TMS focuses on treating the source of the depression. It sends magnetic pulses which electrically stimulate the malfunctioning circuit, restoring the brain to proper functioning.

What to Expect

During a TMS treatment session, magnetic pulses stimulate deep brain circuits by resting a treatment coil on a precisely mapped area of your head. 

During treatment, you remain awake and alert. You can watch TV, listen to music, read a book. After a quick, 30-minutes your done until your next session.

The NeuroStar Advanced Therapy System is indicated for the treatment of depressive episodes and for decreasing anxiety symptoms for those who may exhibit comorbid anxiety symptoms in adult patients suffering from Major Depressive Disorder (MDD) and who failed to achieve satisfactory improvement from previous antidepressant medication treatment in the current episode.

The NeuroStar Advanced Therapy system is intended to be used as an adjunct for the treatment of adult patients suffering from Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD).

NeuroStar Advanced Therapy is only available by prescription. A doctor can help decide if NeuroStar Advanced Therapy is right for you. Patients’ results may vary.

Important Safety Information

The most common side effect is pain or discomfort at or near the treatment site. These events are transient; they occur during the TMS treatment course and do not occur for most patients after the first week of treatment. There is a rare risk of seizure associated with the use of TMS therapy (<0.1% per patient).

NeuroStar Advanced Therapy should not be used with patients who have non-removable conductive metal in or near the head. NeuroStar Advanced Therapy has not been studied in patients who have not received prior antidepressant treatment.
