Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS), the first and only non-invasive treatment for depression approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), was featured Wednesday, March 14, on the Dr. Oz program.
TMS is a non-medicinal treatment for major depressive disorder. It is managed by board-certified physicians and features no systemic side effects, such as weight gain or sexual problems. TMS was approved for use by the FDA in Oct. 2008.
“TMS is an exciting addition to Rosecrance’s armamentarium in our battle against depression,” said Dr. Raymond Garcia, M.D., medical director at the Rosecrance Harrison Campus.
