About BrainsWay Deep TMS for OCD Treatment

Quick, Safe and Personalized

If you have been diagnosed with obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) and are currently being treated with medication or psychotherapy, BrainsWay may offer an additional treatment option to help you achieve wellbeing.  Each therapy session lasts approximately 18 minutes, has minimal side effects, and is personalized for your specific OCD symptoms.

Prior to TMS, we will design a personalized protocol based on your specific OCD symptoms.  During each session, you will be comfortably seated on a chair and a cushioned, air-cooled helmet placed on your head.  The helmet uses magnetic fields to stimulate the targeted brain area and improve depressive symptoms.  The helmet uses magnetic fields to stimulate the targeted brain region and improve OCD symptoms.  The procedure requires daily sessions of 18 minutes for 6 weeks.  As the treatment is done in an outpatient setting with no anesthesia, and entails no  systemic side effects, you can return to your normal routine after each session.

Studies have shown the treatment to be effective for patients with OCD who have failed to respond to or could not tolerate medication.  Patients in the BrainsWay clinical study were maintained on existing medication and psychotherapy, but many had not experienced relief until TMS treatment was provided.  In a large multicenter study, 38% of patients achieved a substantial 30% reduction in symptoms and 55% of patients achieved over 20% reduction in symptoms.

BrainsWay uses Deep TMS technology, which has been tested in over 60 clinical studies for various indications in leading institutions world wide.  The FDA has cleared this technology for clinical use in Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder and it is currently available in the US, Europe and South America.

Safety Information:  Patients should consult with their doctor before undergoing BrainsWay.  The most common side effects include headaches and application site pain or discomfort.  There is also a very rare risk of seizure associated with the treatment.  Patients with metal in or around the head such as in metal plates, implants and stents, should not undergo Deep TMS treatment.
