TMS delivers magnetic stimulation to the brain. The technique involves placement of a small coil over the head; a rapidly alternating magnetic pulse is passed through the coil wire, producing a magnetic field that passes unimpeded through the brain. This helps boost brain activity in the area of the brain responsible for depression.

DULUTH TMS TREATMENT PATH
We’ll determine if criteria are met for TMS treatment after a 60-90 min evaluation with Dr. Johnson.
Most insurance companies will require prior authorization. It can take from 3-10 days to receive a decision.
At your first appointment we will determine proper treatment location and dose and then complete a full TMS treatment session.
You will receive daily TMS treatments Monday through Friday for anywhere from 3 to 9 weeks, depending on your needs and insurance.
If additional treatment sessions are needed, a new authorization can be requested from your insurance company.
