Clinical depression is defined as major depression that is non-responsive to traditional therapies. When Dr. Richard Bermudes founded TMS Health Solutions, in 2007, he was looking for a way to incorporate patient centered initiatives with innovative mental health care. The result was a group practice dedicated to Treatment Resistant Depression (TRD), also referred as, “major depressive disorder.” What sets patients apart suffering from TRD is that they’re less likely to respond to medication alone. TMS Health Solutions offers implemented solutions for systematic brainwave disruptions. As a quality care symptomatic option, treatment is patient based, with a 85% success rate within a year. Thanks in large part to the cutting edge technologies of Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation. Unlike standard treatments for clinical depression, Magnetic Stimulation delivers complete patient recovery.
Utilizing innovative therapy and advanced research, TMS Health Solutions has discovered a responsive treatment that go beyond standalone antidepressants. Patients suffering from clinical depression often require long term therapy. When these patients don’t respond to regular treatment, the wave of the magnetic coil has far reaching results. It stimulates and reroutes the disruption of the brain’s electromagnetic activity. The normal neural activity of patients dramatically improves after they undergo 30-36 treatments during a four to six week timeframe. TMS Health Solutions patients resume normal activities immediately following the 30-60 minute outpatient treatment.
Because Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation is a groundbreaking technique, Health Solutions has highly qualified experts, including the best specialists in Psychiatric and Neurological care. Headquartered in San Francisco and serving the entire Northern California area, TMS Health Solutions’ innovative therapies are thought to be the treatment of the future. In addition to Magnetic Stimulation, TMS has spearheaded methodologies to ensure patients receive tailored treatment, that is medically supervised, specifically for their condition.
TMS Health Solutions is a leader in the treatment of brain defined clinical depression. Rather than focus on the problem, they’ve deriatived an innovative solution using electromagnetic waves. Thus, the patient focused treatment restores normal brainwave activity after completion of the long term therapies. Other treatment options include psychotherapy, medication, and electroconvulsive therapy (ECT). Electroconvulsive therapy involves deliberate brain seizure induction, hospitalization and anesthesia; however it’s an outpatient procedure. Once patients are diagnosed with major depression, they’re evaluated by the clinicians and psychiatric staff; then the best treatment option is selected. Usually this means a combination of TMS therapy, Electroconvulsive therapy and an antidepressant.
