Take our online depression self-assessment

Active Recovery TMS has partnered with NeuroStar to offer Neuronetics’ NeuroStar Advanced Therapy system to patients.

NeuroStar Advanced Therapy is a market leader in transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), a non-invasive treatment of Major Depressive Disorder (MDD) in patients who have failed to receive satisfactory improvement from prior antidepressant medication. It is reimbursed by most commercial and government health plans, including Medicare and Tricare.

TMS uses a targeted pulsed magnetic field, similar to what is used in an MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) machine. While the patient is awake and alert, NeuroStar TMS Therapy stimulates areas of the brain that are underactive in depression.

Before treatment

  • You’ll recline comfortably in the treatment chair
  • A small, curved magnetic coil will be positioned lightly on your head

During treatment

  • NeuroStar delivers focused magnetic stimulation directly to the target areas of the brain
  • You’ll hear a clicking sound and feel a tapping sensation on your head

After treatment

  • You can resume normal activities immediately
  • Because there are no effects on alertness or memory, you can drive yourself to and from treatment sessions

In-office treatment with NeuroStar TMS Therapy takes around 20 minutes and is administered 5 days a week for 6 weeks.
