When it comes to depression treatments, transcranial magnetic stimulation (or TMS) has been gaining popularity among the medical community due to its efficacy and safety profile. Psychiatrists consider it a great option for sufferers of depression who want to try and reduce their medication, or for patients who don’t benefit from 2 initial antidepressants.
In Victoria you may have googled “TMS Melbourne” in the past, only to find hospitals requiring admission and clinical trials.
This is about to change! Following the increase in demand at the TMS Melbourne CBD clinic on Collins street (a TMS Australia clinic), network is due to expand this spring 2018.
In our goal to make outpatient transcranial magnetic stimulation available to more Aussies, TMS Australia is moving forward with 2 new clinics in Mornington and Geelong. These new locations will help keep our “no waiting list” promise while always providing a gold standard treatment under the guidance of Professor Paul Fitzgerald.
The mission of TMS Australia is to “Bring happiness back into the life of patients and their loved ones”. By using the latest protocols, we are at the forefront of innovation to deliver the best possible outcomes to our patients.
About TMS Australia:
TMS Australia was co-founded by Professor Paul Fitzgerald and Dr Ted Cassidy who foresaw the necessity to provide this drug-free treatment for depression in an outpatient setting.
Recent clinical trials keep demonstrating the efficacy of TMS in depression, and the durability of its effect.
