RICHMOND, Va. and WASHINGTON, D.C., Jan. 14, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- , one of the leading providers of Deep Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) therapy in the United States, announced today that it is now offering for obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) at its facility, located near Richmond Va., and at its facility, located outside of Washington, D.C. These locations will be among the first providers in Virginia to offer access to this revolutionary treatment.
“We take pride in providing our patients with the latest technologies for treating OCD and other mental illnesses,” said Dr. William Sauve, regional medical director of Virginia for Greenbrook TMS. “We’ve seen success in using BrainsWay’s Deep TMS helmet to help our patients with major depressive disorder (MDD), and we look forward to expanding our offerings to those suffering from OCD.”
BrainsWay’s Deep TMS administers magnetic waves through a cushioned helmet to target deep structures of the brain that impact a patients’ depression and OCD 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 received to target OCD in 2018.
Greenbrook TMS NeuroHealth Centers specialize in helping patients living with OCD and MDD, and who are treatment-resistant to traditional medication. The center provides Deep TMS as a stand-alone treatment or with medication and therapy to best fit the patient's unique needs.
