TMS for Obsessive Compulsive Disorder

Who may benefit?
Those who have been diagnosed with obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) and are currently not gaining full benefit from medications or psychotherapy may benefit from the addition of TMS therapy.
How is TMS administered for OCD?
A course of treatments is daily for about 6-weeks. Each session is 18-minutes in length. As with all TMS treatments, it is non-invasive, is anesthesia-free, has no systemic side effects and you can return to your normal routine after each treatment.
