WHAT TO EXPECT

At SPRI Clinical Trials , we offer the most up-to-date treatment and therapy options for patients in the Brooklyn area. TMS is the most innovative treatment for depression symptoms.

What Can You Expect?

Before administering TMS, our team of experts and physicians will conduct a psychiatric evaluation to review your medical history and symptoms. If it’s determined that you are a viable candidate for TMS, we will compile an individualized treatment plan. Based on your schedule, we will then coordinate a schedule of treatment sessions that last approximately 30 minutes.

Prior to the procedure, you will be seated in a comfortable chair in our exam room. The first TMS session may take longer than the typical 30-40 minute session as our technicians and physicians work to determine the best section of your head to administer TMS and your motor threshold for the magnetic field strength.

During the procedure, the TMS machine will deliver magnetic field pulses through the helmet. While patients rarely experience any discomfort, they will experience a tapping sensation on the scalp. To minimize the sound, we often outfit our patients with noise-cancelling headphones or ear plugs.

After the procedure, you can resume normal activity and even drive yourself to and from each session.
