About Brainsway TMS Therapy for Major Depressive Disorder 

Introduction to BrainsWay Treatment

  • BrainsWay treatment has been shown to be safe and effective in the treatment of patients with Major Depressive Disorder.
  • TMS Therapy is a non-systemic (does not circulate in the bloodstream throughout the body) and non-invasive (does not involve surgery) form of neuromodulation, which stimulates nerve cells in an area of the brain that is linked to depression, by delivering highly focused MRI-strength magnetic pulses.
  • Patients being treated by TMS Therapy do not require anesthesia or sedation and remain awake and alert.
  • It is a 20-30 minute outpatient procedure that is prescribed by a psychiatrist and performed in a psychiatrist’s office.
  • The treatment sessions include daily treatments for a period of 4 weeks.
  • Each treatment session lasts approximately 20-30 minutes. Your doctor may consider further biweekly maintenance treatments in order to continue treating your depression.
