TMS Treatment for OCD
For the last decade, depression has been the presenting problem that TMS protocols have targeted. Recently, a separate protocol and coil have been developed specifically for persons suffering from obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD). Our office is the first on Long Island to obtain the coil and administer the protocol specifically designed to treat OCD. We are currently offering this service at our 55 Nesconset Highway location in Port Jefferson Station with current availability for intake. This protocol has been approved by the FDA for the system we use. Please see here:
Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) Therapy:
TMS therapy is an FDA approved form of brain stimulation used to treat patients with depression and/or OCD who have not improved sufficiently through conventional approaches. In many cases we are able to offer a lower cost TMS treatment program than other TMS providers on Long Island. There are promising results for other uses of TMS therapy in patients with ADHD, panic, PTSD and other mental illnesses. Trials are in progress for smoking cessation.
Our Equipment Reduces Cost:
We can offer both neuro-navigated TMS by Nexstim and non navigated TMS by Magventure. We have worked with our vendors to reduce our costs as much as possible in order to pass on the savings to the patient. This allows us to offer a reduction in fees for patients with financial hardship. Our staff will also work with patients' insurance to determine if insurance will cover all or part of the cost of TMS.
