What is TMS?
Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (rTMS) is a recognised treatment for depression and other neurological conditions.
Clinical studies have demonstrated the effectiveness of TMS in the treatment of depression, particularly in patients who have not responded well to anti-depressant medication.
TMS is a non-invasive treatment delivered by an external magnetic coil placed lightly touching the scalp. The coil sends repetitive electromagnetic pulses to stimulate neuron activity in specific surface areas of the brain that regulate mood.
TMS is a recognised treatment for depression by the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Psychiatrists (RANZCP Position Statement 79 – Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation).
From 1 November 2021, Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (rTMS) therapy services will be added to the Medicare Benefits Schedule (MBS) for eligible patients with diagnosed medication-resistant major depressive disorder, for more information please see HERE.
