SAN JOSE, Calif., March 05, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Silicon Valley TMS, an integrated, multidisciplinary private practice group providing a full range of outpatient mental health and chemical dependency services, today announced that it will be one of the first practices in Northern California to offer its patients access to BrainsWay’s Deep Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (Deep TMS) therapy for Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD). Silicon Valley TMS currently utilizes Deep TMS for patients living with depression in its San Jose, Pleasanton, Santa Cruz, San Francisco and Mountain View practices.

“Treating patients in one of the most populated states in the country, California physicians are grappling with meeting the needs of many individuals with mental illness in the state who do not receive necessary treatment,” said Saad A. Shakir, M.D., chief medical officer at Silicon Valley TMS. “At Silicon Valley TMS, we are committed to helping those in our local and surrounding communities living with mental illness by offering the most cutting-edge and effective treatments. We have applied therapeutic use of Deep TMS for our patients living with depression, seeing success rates as high as 86 percent among our patient population and are thrilled to add the latest Deep TMS device to our arsenal for our patients living with OCD, with the hope of seeing similar results.”

Deep TMS is a non-invasive treatment that has no systemic side effects and requires no hospitalization or anesthesia. As a treatment that does not require drugs, patients are awake during Deep TMS treatment and can return to daily activities, including driving, immediately following the session. Deep TMS works by stimulating the region of the brain responsible for OCD. The treatment was cleared by the FDA on August 20, 2018.

Silicon Valley TMS of Monterey Bay specializes in chronic pain management, Deep TMS therapy for depression and OCD, neuropsychiatry and ketamine treatments for depression. It has an armamentarium of treatment tools that include psychiatric consultation and psychotherapy, pharmacogenomics and Deep TMS services. Patients undergo an integrated collaborative approach to treatment including an in-depth initial evaluation by multiple members of the Silicon Valley TMS team. This unique, multi-pronged evaluation and treatment approach improves the wellness of the individual and yields improved physical, mental and optimal wellness and nutritional health.
