TMS of Knoxville
TMS is the breakthrough technology for non-drug treatment of depression and promises to be the future of psychiatric treatment—providing hope for patients for whom medication treatment and psychotherapy have failed to achieve satisfactory results. At TMS of Knoxville, we have successfully treated many patients with resistant depression, and some have been able to discontinue all antidepressants successfully.
The cutting-edge MagVita TMS system used at TMS of Knoxville is licensed only to psychiatrists with appropriate clinical training. This new technology, which was cleared by the FDA initially for treating major depression in 2008, has been bringing hope to people across the world whose doctors have struggled to effectively bring them back to wellness.
TMS of Knoxville has the first and only MagVita TMS treatment available in the East Tennessee area. Our office bought the first MagVita system in the eastern half of the U.S. MagVita is made by a Danish company, MagVenture. They were among the pioneers of the TMS machines, the first to. bring out a water-cooled coil and the only liquid cooled coil of the 5 machines FDA cleared in the USA. The MagVita system is our second system purchased and used to treat difficult depression.
