Is depression robbing you of joy? Have you tried medication and/or therapy without consistent success? Don’t despair! TMS Integrative Brain Institute has another way to treat depression that is non-invasive, non-systemic, has minimal side effects and risks, is Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved for major, treatment-resistant depression and is covered by most insurance including Medicare.
Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) has been proven effective in over sixty clinical trials. 50% of patients achieved remission and 75% reported improvement. TMS treatments take twenty minutes and are administered five days a week for four to six weeks. Are you willing to give yourself seven to ten hours (plus travel time) to see how much better you can feel? The TMS machine emits a targeted electro-magnetic field that works with the part of the brain which controls serotonin. Over the course of treatment TMS can achieve what electro-shock therapy can, without any of the side effects. You can return to work or your other daily activities right after a treatment.
You can change the way you feel about your life.
A Strong Team Helping a Strong Community
Dr. Thomas Wind has spent more than 25 years providing individualized attention and detailed care for patients, including other medical professionals. He has served in all areas of mental health (from inpatient hospitals to private practice), and is a supervising physician for nurse practitioners and therapists in varied settings, including special education. As a leader within his community, he strives to bring relief to those living with mental illness.
In addition to her busy Row Psychiatric practice, Rosemary Fordjour, C.R.N.P. performs volunteer work in West Africa with the Rhode Foundation, whose mission is to bring medical care to the rural areas of the Republic of Ghana. Her passion for taking outstanding care of others continues into this TMS treatment practice. Here she provides a cognitive assessment for each patient both before and after completion of treatments.
Both Dr. Wind and Ms. Fordjour use therapy, DNA assessments, nutritional therapy, and the least amount of effective medications in their private practices. Their well-rounded approach to mental wellness ensures each person who steps through the door of TMS Integrative Brain Institute will always receive full dedication to their mental health.
Your TMS Journey Begins Here
You will begin your journey with a diagnostic assessment by our Director of Psychiatric Services. This will determine if TMS treatment is suitable for you. It consists of a thorough 60-90 minute evaluation of your history and your current state of mental health.
We apply for prior insurance authorization. If you meet the criteria for TMS treatment, it is very likely your insurance company will require a prior authorization. This decision can take one to two weeks.
After insurance authorization our medical director in conjunction with our director of psychiatric services will “map” where the TMS helmet should be placed for optimum results. In your first treatment we will determine the best dose of TMS to help you, fit you with your helmet and your first full TMS 19-min treatment.
You will receive 19 minute treatments Monday through Friday. Your treatment course can range from four to six depending on your need and insurance authorization.
If you need refresher treatments at any time we will contact your insurance carrier and request them. These refreshers, if needed, could occur years after your original treatment course.
Once TMS treatment is complete, clients can return to their prescribing provider for ongoing medication management or therapy if either are needed
At TMS Integrative Brain Institute, we have found that, over a period of time, depression can leave a lasting impact on the cognitive perception of the individual suffering with depression. This is why every client is given a cognitive assessment prior to treatment and after treatment.
By having this baseline information, we are able to create a personalized and individualized treatment through a multifactorial therapeutic approach.
What People Say
“I have battled depression for years and the symptoms only got worse, making it more difficult to overcome negative feelings. My therapist and counselor at the time suggested that I try Brainsway. It saved my life. It has given me a new life. My hope is that my story will help others who, like myself, found no success with conventional medication treatment, and hopefully their road to recovery will not be as long as mine.”John, MDD patient treated with BrainswayD
