Deep TMS Therapy for Depression, Anxious Depression and Major Depressive Disorder (MDD)

Deep TMS is US FDA cleared to safely and effectively treat the symptoms of Depression, Anxious Depression and Major Depressive Disorder (MDD). At ANC, we use BrainsWay’s patented H1-coil technology for our treatments, which is designed to maximize electrical stimulation to the deeper regions of the brain. Deep TMS for depression works by utilizing BrainsWay’s H-coil technology to directly reach wider and deeper regions of the brain and regulate neural activity of the brain structures associated with Depression, Anxious depression and Major Depressive Disorder (MDD) – specifically the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex (DLPFC).

Since Deep TMS is a non-invasive treatment, it is well tolerated by most patients and does not cause any long-lasting side effects.
