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.
TMS TREATMENT TYPES
INSURANCE & PAYMENTS
TMS treatment is covered by most insurances and you may need to pay an insurance copay or percentage (coinsurance) at each session, per your insurance’s requirements. We work diligently to obtain TMS treatment approval and will review your benefits with you prior to starting the TMS treatment course.
“Attention Depression Sufferers:
Here’s the scoop. As I come to the end of my treatment sessions, I feel like I need to share… sort of a testament (unsolicited).
I have had Chronic Depression for 32 years. Finally, someone, somewhere came up with what is today called TMS, or Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation. If you only knew everything I have tried up to this point. The switching around of the medications, job changes, heartaches, and sofas (in Dr. offices).
Out of desperation, I read this ad from Duluth TMS. I thought that maybe this could be my answered prayer. I went into Duluth TMS out of blind faith and an opened mind. Correct attitude is important.
I was stressed, depressed, restless, and yet extremely tired, irritable, and frustrated. Basically, well past overwhelmed.
Thing is that I never gave up hope. I discovered Duluth TMS and found out I no longer needed hope because I noticed a difference in my thinking from day one. My “Beck’s and “PHQ-9” scores were improving with each passing week. I couldn’t wait till my next appointment.
Magnets are my BFF! A Lifesaving and a load of thanks to Dr. Johnson and the staff at Duluth TMS”
