Robert A Sammons, Jr., M.D., Ph.D. will then present, 7-8pm, “Clinical Overview of Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation”: Psychotherapy and medications remain the first line of treatment for patients with depression, yet every practice has patients who do not respond to either. TMS is an intermediary step between treatment failure and Electroconvulsive Therapy (ECT). Learn the history, understand the mechanism of action, the indications for referral, and the process of this non-systemic and non-invasive procedure. This presentation is non-promotional and has been approved by the Clinical TMS Society.
As always, please be in touch with me directly, anytime, with questions or agenda items.
