Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS)

TMS Treatment

Dr. Kenneth Etefia, MD

Welcome to Renaissance Behavioral Medicine, where we offer cutting-edge treatments to help you achieve optimal mental health. Dr. Kenneth Etefia, MD, a double board-certified adult and child psychiatrist, is dedicated to providing innovative and effective treatments for mental health disorders. One such advanced therapy is Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS), a non-invasive approach for depression and other mood disorders.

What is Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS)?

Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) is a cutting-edge non-invasive treatment for depression and other mood disorders. Unlike traditional treatments such as medication or therapy, TMS targets specific areas of the brain associated with mood regulation. During TMS sessions, magnetic pulses are delivered to these areas, stimulating neural activity and promoting positive changes in mood.

How Does TMS Work?

TMS works by using magnetic pulses to stimulate nerve cells in the brain. These pulses are targeted at specific regions of the brain, such as the prefrontal cortex, which is involved in mood regulation. By stimulating these areas, TMS can help rebalance brain activity and alleviate symptoms of depression and other mood disorders.

Our Approach

At Renaissance Behavioral Medicine, our TMS specialists are dedicated to providing personalized care and effective treatment options for our patients. Here's what you can expect from our TMS program:

Comprehensive Evaluation

Your TMS journey begins with a comprehensive evaluation by Dr. Etefia. During this assessment, we will gather information about your medical history, current symptoms, and previous treatments to determine if TMS is the right option for you.

Customized Treatment Plan

Based on the evaluation, our TMS specialists will develop a customized treatment plan tailored to your individual needs. This plan will outline the frequency and duration of your TMS sessions, as well as any additional therapies or interventions that may be beneficial.

TMS Sessions

TMS sessions are conducted in our comfortable and welcoming office environment. During each session, you will sit in a chair while a TMS device is positioned over your scalp. The device delivers magnetic pulses to specific areas of your brain, targeting the regions responsible for mood regulation.

Safe and Effective Treatment

TMS is a safe and well-tolerated treatment option for depression and other mood disorders. Our specialists closely monitor each TMS session to ensure safety and effectiveness. Most patients experience minimal discomfort during treatment and can resume their normal activities immediately afterward.

Alternative for Treatment-Resistant Depression

TMS offers a safe and effective alternative for individuals who have not responded to traditional treatments like medication or therapy. By directly targeting the brain regions involved in mood regulation, TMS can provide relief for those who have struggled to find relief with other therapies.
