How Is Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) Performed?

Read Transcript

Tumors treatment involves having a patient sit on a chair, a very comfortable chair. We put a magnetic device on the head and we provide a pulse every four seconds with 26 second breaks for about 37 minutes and the treatment is provided in that fashion for five days a week for three to six weeks until the patient gets completely better.

It does not involve any electrical shock or radiation or anesthesia. It's extremely comfortable. Patients by themselves to treatment and the ride back. And during the treatment we also provide some level of therapy and lifestyle changes and if the patient is interested they can even watch TV or play with their latest iPad.
