Deep TMS Therapy for Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)

Deep TMS is US FDA cleared to safely and effectively treat the symptoms of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD). At ANC, we use BrainsWay’s patented H7-coil technology for our treatments, which is designed to maximise electrical stimulations to the deeper regions of the brain. Deep TMS for OCD works by utilizing BrainsWay’s H7-coil to directly reach wider and deeper regions of the brain and regulate neural activity of the brain structures associated with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder – specifically the Anterior Cingulate Cortex and Medial Prefrontal Cortex.

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