dTMS, brain, transcranial magnetic stimulation,

dTMS: Deep Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation – New Treatment Options

To raise new questions, new possibilities, to regard old problems from a new angle,

requires creative imagination and marks real advance in science.

— Albert Einstein

The brain runs on electrical charges, and targeted magnetism can balance those charges in the living brain.

– Aron Tendler

Treatment Failure

dTMS provides some surprisingly fresh answers to previously “untreatable” psychiatric problems.This is how our interview with Dr Tendler started: he hit fresh interventions strategies hard – right out of the box – and continued with deep insights throughout our too-brief conversation. Note: He agreed to return now that we’ve had this opportunity for an introduction regarding this exceedingly interesting technology and treatment. dTMS does appear to provide significant answers for refractory responses on many levels – see this list of Indications that are currently under investigation – they’re more than just “interesting.”

Ed Note:

Dr Tendler is in active practice, and, in addition, is actively involved in dTMS research. In this interview he spells out the differences between rTMS and dTMS and discusses his clinical work, his successes, and his ongoing inquiries.

His Message In A Sentence:

dTMS Provides an interesting and effective alternative to simply using psychiatric medications alone – TMS strategies work for a variety of conditions from refractory depression to pervasive anxiety.
