Welcome to TMS Center of Southern IllinoisHelping Our Community, One Person at A Time
Southern Illinois Associates, LLC and Dr. Sanjay K Nigam, are pleased to be able to offer Neurostar TMS Therapy. Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation Therapy is one of the most Technologically advanced depression treatments available.
TMS (Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation) uses a targeted pulse magnetic field, similar to what is used in MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) machine to treat depression. While the patient is awake and alert, NeuroStar TMS Therapy stimulates areas of the brain that are underactive in depression.
Transcranial magnetic stimulation(TMS) is a noninvasive procedure that uses magnetic fields to a small region of the brain to improve symptoms of depression. The pulse of magnetic stimulation causes the neuron to depolarize and send signals to the areas of the brain which are affected by depression.
