Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation Treatment
Smart TMS is expanding its non-invasive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation services with the launch of a service based in Dublin, Ireland.
The Dublin-based clinic will be offering repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation treatment for depression to the Irish market.
TMS Treatment for Depression
TMS is a non-invasive and medication-free treatment which can be used for treating depression. Treatment uses magnetic activity to stimulate nerve activity in the brain. Over a course of treatment, the results can be significant and potentially life-changing for those who have suffered from long-term mental health issues.
It was approved by the FDA in America in 2008 and approved by NICE in 2015 for use in the UK.
Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation Treatment is a true technological breakthrough. It offers patients a safe and effective new treatment option for difficult conditions.
- No medication
- No sedation or anaesthesia
- No surgery
rTMS treatment avoids the side-effects and addiction issues which patients on medication can face.
Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation treatment can work for patients with severe depression for whom antidepressants are not effective or tolerated. It can also work for patients who have tried ECT without success.
Smart TMS Results
Success rates for treating depression with TMS are generally considered to be around 30%, but the team at Smart TMS have developed protocols which are generating success rates of 60—70%.
Other Conditions Treated
In addition to treatment for depression, TMS has also shown potential for treating a range of other medical and psychiatric conditions too. These additional treatments are not available at many TMS clinics, as they require additional expertise with thorough screening and understanding of the patient. However, Smart TMS has confirmed that its Dublin clinic will also have rTMS treatment options available for:
Smart TMS was established in 2015, dedicated to providing TMS treatment in London at their South Kensington/Brompton Cross centre. The company opened a second clinic in Birmingham in September 2017 and is planning further locations for Manchester and Bristol in 2018.
