NeuroStar Advanced Therapy (TMS)

What is NeuroStar Advanced Therapy (TMS)?

NeuroStar Advanced Therapy (TMS) is an advanced therapy which uses a targeted, pulsed magnetic field, similar to what is used in a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) machine. The pulses, produced through a NeuroStar FDA approved device, are delivered directly to the specific area of the brain involved in depression

Dr. Fickey is a nationally recognized TMS provider and played a crucial role in presenting the positive benefits of Neurostar TMS for Major Depressive Disorder in Adolescents, leading to its successful approval in March 2024. Dr. Fickey and her team have:

  • Performed over 20,000 treatment sessions.
  • Helped numerous children and adolescents with depression, anxious depression and OCD.
  • She has presented in front of the FDA in an effort to have Neurostar TMS FDA-approved in the pediatric population so that it can be covered by insurance, making TMS more readily available to younger patients.
  • Seen remarkable improvements in her child and adolescent patients in their anxiety and depressive symptoms along with treating patients struggling with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).

In the ASD population she has seen significant improvements in:

  • Communication and reduction in irritability
  • Depression
  • Anxiety

Dr. Fickey's offices have shown a higher response and remission rate in the pediatric population than the national average.

Embracing Life Wellness Center is proud to offer NeuroStar Advanced Therapy (TMS) at our offices in Riverview and Tampa, Florida. Dr. Fickey and her staff are excited to offer this profoundly effective treatment to the community and their patients.

NeuroStar Advanced Therapy treatment for Anxiety and OCD

Anxiety and depression often go hand in hand. NeuroStar Advanced Therapy is FDA cleared as a treatment for adults suffering from major depressive disorder (MDD) with comorbid anxiety symptoms.

NeuroStar Advanced Therapy not only treats Major Depressive Disorder (MDD) but can also be an adjunct for the treatment of adult patients suffering from Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD).

TMS at Embracing Life

Embracing Life Wellness Center is proud to be a Diamond Provider for NeuroStar.

NeuroStar Advanced Therapy (TMS) stimulates areas of the brain that are underactive in individuals with depressive symptoms during 19-minute treatment sessions. Unlike medications that are dispersed throughout the entire body, this is a targeted treatment for depression without the common side effects caused by medications.

After someone has failed two or more antidepressant medications, the chance of getting to remission is significantly low in comparison to the response and remission rates NeuroStar offers.

NeuroStar Advanced Therapy (TMS) is not electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) and it is covered under insurance policies. Contact us today to set up a consultation to begin achieving full remission of your symptoms.
