Why Dr Zawadzki Chose to Add TMS to His Practice

It became quite evident in the early stages of my career that some patients just would not respond adequately to the antidepressants that they had tried. Others would feel a bit better, but would not respond to a degree that they would like. Still others would experience intolerable side effects

This led to some patients suffering from anxiety and depression with few other options that were simply not medication based. Promises of novel antidepressants have been exciting, but slow to come to fruition.

TMS (Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation) offered an opportunity for these patients to be treated without the usual burdens of endless medication trials. TMS directed treatment straight at the source – an area of the brain known to be underactive in depression.

In most cases, TMS focuses a beam of magnetic energy at a part of the brain called the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex (DLPLC), forcing it to ‘wake up’ and begin functioning more normally once again. This is what helps the patients feel better. A series of treatments will focus this energy so that the brain re-learns how to activate normally, resulting in less depression and sensation of improved well-being.

Because there are no medications involved in TMS, it is particularly useful for those patients who have only a partial response to medications, or cannot take antidepressant medications for one reason or another.
