What is NeuroStar?

NeuroStar is a safe, effective, non-drug depression treatment that uses focused magnetic pulses, similar in strength to an MRI, to revitalize connections in an area of the brain involved in regulating your mood. When these connections are reawakened, many people experience measurable relief from their depression.

Does it work?

In a study of “real-world” outcomes (meaning actual NeuroStar patients), 83% of people who completed the full NeuroStar treatment cycle experienced a measurable decrease in the severity of their depression, and 62% of those completing treatment saw full remission – meaning their depression effectively “went away.”

Does it hurt?

While there may be some minor discomfort at the treatment site (where the device touches your head), it generally subsides within the first week of treatment. There is no sedation, or impact on your alertness. You can read, watch TV, or talk with your treatment coordinator during your session, and you can drive home immediately after your treatment.

Does insurance cover it?

Over 300 million people have insurance plans that cover NeuroStar, including Medicare and Tricare. Conditions and coverage can vary by insurance company, and your NeuroStar Team Lead will help you to determine your benefits and coverage. We also offer cash-pay and patient financing options if desired. Talk with your NeuroStar representative for more details.

Who is NeuroStar for?

NeuroStar is FDA-cleared for adults with Major Depressive Disorder who have not found relief from antidepressant medications. A NeuroStar leader will walk you through the full qualifications for treatment during your initial consultation.

What To Expect Week By Week

Everyone’s experience and timing with TMS is different. Some individuals will start to feel positive results within the first week, while some may not feel them until the very end. Some patients’ report that they did not realize the treatment was working until friends and family noted affirmative changes.

It is important to trust the process and stay committed to all 36 treatments. You may experience some of these positive changes:

  • Improved appetite and
    eating habits
  • Improved quality of sleep
  • Elevated mood
  • More energy
  • Better concentration
  • Restored interest in hobbies
  • More social disposition
  • Feeling of weight lifted
  • Greater vibrancy of color

You will meet with our TMS Affiliated Psychiatrist to answer the previous questions regarding your history as well as your symptoms. If it is found that TMS is a good recommendation for you, then the next step would be to receive a personalized treatment plan.


Come in For Your First Appointment

After you have received your treatment plan, your first appointment will be scheduled and your “mapping” will be done. This is to identify the correct magnet strangth and coil placement to ensure your safety during your TMS journey. You will be provided earplugs or you may use your own, as well as be able to watch a video during the process.

The first appointment and the mapping process will take approximately 1 hour, however each additional appointment can be as little as 3-5 minutes.


Continue Your TMS Journey

You will come in and recline comfortably in our TMS treatment chair to finish the remainder of your TMS treatments. You may feel a tapping, tingling, or warming sensation where the coil is positioned, however this is temporary and typically subsides with subsequent treatments. There is no sedation or anesthesia—you will be awake and alert during the treatment and may resume regular activities immediately afterward.
