What is Deep TMS (dTMS)?
BrainsWay Deep Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation is a non-invasive, FDA-Cleared, outpatient treatment for depression and OCD with proven clinical results.
The technology was designed to stimulate neuronal targets using its patented H-coils, resulting in a deep and broad penetration of the magnetic field into areas of the brain that are affected in neuropsychiatric disorders.
Covered by most insurers for MDD, TMS is well-tolerated, with no systemic side effects and does not require anesthesia.

Patients with severe MOD or OCD symptoms don't always respond sufficiently to evidence-based psychological treatments
• Recurrent MDD episodes, as well as negative expectations about MDD treatment, have been shown to be associated with reduced outcomes for psychotherapy.
• Studies demonstrate that the severity of OCD is a reliable predictor of non-response to comprehensive cognitive therapy. Patients often fail to respond sufficiently to medications.
• 33% of MDD patients are resistant to any medication. 52% fail to respond to 1st line therapy. (STAR*D results).
• Approximately 50% of OCD patients are resistant to current first-line treatment methods, including SSRI medications. Patients often discontinue medication due to serious side effects.
•Antidepressant medication frequently produces side effects, such as weight gain, sexual dysfunction, suicidal thoughts, nausea, insomnia, and anxiety.
