Neurostar TMS of Westchester

Neurostar TMS Therapy is a safe, FDA cleared, effective office based treatment.

The NeuroStar TMS Therapy system, developed by Neuronetics,

offered at TMS of Westchester is the first and only non-systemic and non-invasive TMS system cleared by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the treatment of patients with major depressions who have not benefited from prior antidepressant treatment. This non-invasive treatment for depression uses a highly focused, pulsed magnetic field to stimulate function in targeted brain regions. It is made available to patients by prescription only and delivered under the supervision of a psychiatrist.

NeuroStar TMS Therapy is:

Non-invasive, meaning that it does not involve surgery. It does not require any anesthesia or sedation, and the patient remains awake and alert during the treatment.
Non-systemic, meaning that it is not taken by mouth and does not circulate in the blood stream throughout the body.

In clinical studies, treatment with TMS caused few side effects and was generally well tolerated by patients. There is a rare risk of seizure associated with TMS.

Antidepressant medication commonly reported side effects include:

• Weight gain
• Dry mouth
• Nausea
• Fatigue
• Drowsiness
• Headache / Migraine
• Insomnia
• Decreased libido
• Impotence
• Anxiety
• Tremor

TMS Therapy commonly reported side effects include:

• Mild to moderate scalp pain which dissipates after the first few treatments.


TMS therapy has been safely administered with over 20 years of research in the treatment of depression. TMS of Westchester uses the NeuroStar TMS therapy system, which is the ONLY TMS device that is FDA cleared and proven safe and effective for the treatment of depression. TMS therapy should not be used on patients with implanted metallic devices or non-removable metallic objects in or around the head.

• In an open-label clinical trial, most like real world clinical practices, 1 out of 2 patients treated with NeuroStar TMS experienced significant improvement in depression symptoms.
• 1 out of 3 experienced complete symptom relief at the end of 6 weeks

Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation

For people who are suffering from DEPRESSION or struggling with medication side effects, there is HOPE!

The Therapy Center is proud to announce that it is now offering FDA cleared, safe, proven, non-drug treatment for depression:

NeuroStar TMS.

Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS)

is a non-invasive medical treatment that we provide in our Bedford Hills office. It is provided by prescription only and is supervised by Dr. Lorraine Innes MD.

During the therapy session, you are wide awake sitting in a comfortable chair. You can listen to music, watch TV or talk to the technician. A small, curved device about the size of a cupped hand rests lightly on your head, delivering focused magnetic stimulation directly to the area of your brain thought to be involved with regulating mood. The magnetic field pulses are the same strength as those used in MRI machines.

Who can benefit from TMS?

If you feel like your depression still has too much control over your life and you have not benefited from drug therapy, you are not alone. More than 4 million patients do not receive adequate benefits from antidepressant medications. Now, TMS of Westchester is offering you an opportunity to consider a new alternative. TMS is bringing new hope every day to people who have not benefited from antidepressant medication. TMS therapy is not appropriate for everyone and our staff will help determine if you are a candidate for this exciting, proven treatment that has already helped others with their depression.

How TMS can help you?

Targeted treatment stimulates the part of the brain thought to be involved in regulating mood.

Easy on the body:

There is no medication required. This non-invasive, non-drug therapy has none of the systemic side effects commonly associated with antidepressant medications. The most common side effect associated with TMS treatment is scalp pain or discomfort, generally mild to moderate which dissipates after the first few treatments. There are no negative effects on memory or concentration.
