FDA-approved helmet to treat MDD is now available in Suwanee and surrounding areas
SUWANEE, Ga., Dec. 03, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Empower Psychiatry & Sleep LLC, a mental health clinic dedicated to serving its community with safe and effective treatments, today announced that BrainsWay’s Deep Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (Deep TMS) therapy is now available for patients with major depressive disorder (MDD).
“It’s our mission to offer the best treatment options to our patients, which is why we are eager to provide Deep TMS for those living with treatment-resistant MDD,” said Dr. Ravi Kumar Singareddy, board-certified psychiatrist and lead physician at Empower Psychiatry & Sleep LLC. “This offering will allow us to reach members of our community who are in need of another option to treat their depression.”
Empower Psychiatry & Sleep LLC is one of just five clinics in Georgia that offers BrainsWay’s Deep TMS treatment as an alternative option for those living with depression. The practice provides a host of evidence-based treatments across the mental health continuum, including Deep TMS, gene testing, medication management and treatment for anxiety and other related disorders.
BrainsWay’s Deep TMS administers magnetic waves through a cushioned helmet to target deep structures of the brain that impact a patients’ depression symptoms. The treatment is both medication-free and noninvasive, and patients can return to normal activities, such as driving, immediately following the session. Because Deep TMS penetrates deeper and broader in the brain than traditional TMS, it enables stimulation of the deep brain structures that are involved in mental health illnesses. BrainsWay has been treating depression with Deep TMS for more than 10 years and was FDA-cleared to target obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) in August 2018.
