Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation
Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) is a non-invasive procedure used to treat certain mental health conditions, particularly depression.
Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (rTMS) is a non-invasive brain stimulation technique that uses magnetic fields to stimulate nerve cells in the brain. It involves placing a coil on the scalp and delivering rapid, repetitive magnetic pulses to specific areas of the brain. rTMS has been shown to have potential therapeutic benefits for a range of conditions, including depression. It is also being investigated for its potential use in treating other neurological and psychiatric disorders, such as schizophrenia and obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD).
rTMS is a relatively new technique in India, and its availability and use may vary depending on factors such as the availability of trained professionals, equipment, and funding. Some hospitals and clinics in major cities such as Pune, Bengaluru, Hubli may offer rTMS as a treatment option for certain conditions, particularly depression, and anxiety. If you are interested in receiving rTMS in Pune or Bengaluru or Hubli it is recommended that you consult with a medical professional who can provide personalized advice and guidance on the availability and suitability of rTMS for your specific needs.
