TMS for Severe Depression at Loyola Medicine

Loyola Medicine patient Ed Pope described his depression as an "overwhelming sadness that started to consume me." A noninvasive FDA-approved treatment called transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) lifted his depression. The treatment uses magnetic pulses to stimulate the brain, causing neurons to fire, which improves symptoms. TMS is intended for patients with moderate to severe depression who are not getting enough relief from medications or psychotherapy. "I cannot say enough about it," Mr. Pope said.
