New Treatment for OCD Sufferers

The FDA has approved Brainsway TMS therapy for the treatment of OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder).

For so called “treatment resistant” OCD patients who don’t derive relief from traditional prescription medication, TMS therapy is a promising alternative. TMS or Transcranial Magnetic Stimuilation is a non-invasive therapy that uses magnets to induce electrical current in the brain thereby stimulating nerve cell activity.

TMS has been used for a decade for safe and effective treatment of major depressive disorder and now has been proven effective in the fight against OCD. Sutton Place TMS has treated over 500 patients and most insurers now cover TMS treatment so please call our office for more information.
