No. TMS therapy is not like Electro Convulsive Therapy (ECT). ECT is a treatment based on using electricity to induce seizures. ECT requires anesthesia and has serious side effects, including memory loss.
On the other hand, Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) uses magnetic pulses to non-invasively stimulate specific brain regions associated with major depressive disorder. TMS therapy is performed in our offices, requires no anesthesia, and has no systemic side effects.
