Neurostimulation with ECT and rTMS

Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation

Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation known as rTMS is a painless, effective, and non-invasive procedure known to improve symptoms of depression and other disorders for many sufferers. It is an effective treatment used to treat depression and can be offered when patients have not responded to antidepressant medication, prefer to try an alternative to medication, or cannot tolerate antidepressant medications due to side effects.

While receiving stimulation the person is fully awake and is usually well tolerated with minimal side effects. There is no need for any anaesthetic or sedation and there are no adverse effects on memory and thinking ability. rTMS is now available on the MBS for outpatients and is fully covered by Medicare.
