Island Psychiatry is the first practice in the United States to offer

Neuronavigated TMS with

Nexstim SmartFocus Technology

Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) is a noninvasive procedure that uses magnetic fields to stimulate nerve cells in the brain to improve symptoms of depression. TMS is typically used when other depression treatments haven't been effective but can be used first if the patient wants to avoid medications (for a variety of reasons) and if the physician approves.  

There are promising results for other uses of TMS therapy in patients with ADHD, OCD, autism, tinnitus, neuropathic pain and other neuropsychiatric conditions. Trials are in progress for stroke rehabilitation and smoking cessation. While clinical studies are in progress and TMS is seen as experimental in some cases, we are also looking at our own data to help us determine which protocols are most effective for our patients.
