Square Medical Group is Now Offering Mental Health Technology for Major Depressive Disorder (MDD) in Offices Across Massachusetts

Deep Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (Deep TMS) therapy poised to make an impact for patients living with MDD, as facility expands its treatment options

Watertown, Massachusetts, UNITED STATES


DANVERS, Mass., Sept. 12, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Square Medical Group, an integrated, multidisciplinary private group practice providing a full-range of outpatient mental health and chemical dependency services, is now offering BrainsWay’s Deep Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (Deep TMS) therapy for Major Depressive Disorder (MDD) at their locations in Watertown, Concord, Weymouth, and most recently, Danvers.

“Square Medical Group’s unique value is our ability to provide the region’s most extensive continuum of care for our patients,” said Dr. Natalie L. Lender, MD, chief medical officer at Square Medical Group. “When patients enter into our system, they are given access to everything from technologically advanced services such as Deep TMS, to traditional medication management, intensive day services and 24-hour residential care, a service we will soon be implementing. We have the unique ability to handle all of our patients’ needs, whether they are acute or in maintenance and remission.”

BrainsWay’s Deep TMS administers magnetic waves through a cushioned helmet to targeted deep structures of the brain that impact a patient’s MDD. The treatment is both a medication-free and non-invasive treatment, allowing patients to return to normal activities, such as driving, immediately following the session. Because Deep TMS penetrates deeper and broader in the brain than traditional TMS, it enables stimulation of the deep brain structures that are involved in numerous mental health illnesses. BrainsWay has been treating depression with Deep TMS for more than 10 years, and also received FDA clearance to target Obsessive-Compulsive disorder (OCD) in 2018.

Dr. Lender founded Square Medical Group in 2008 as a standalone psychiatric group practice, which has since grown to be a Department of Public Health (DPH)-licensed community mental health clinic with 4,000 patients per year. Square Medical Group partners with providers across Massachusetts to offer the most effective care plan for its patients with depression and co-occurring disorders. Square Medical Group is one of the only Deep TMS providers in the state that accepts MassHealth (Medicaid) in addition to Medicare and all commercial insurance plans. In addition to Deep TMS for depression, Square Medical Group practices in Watertown and Weymouth offer counseling, individual and group therapy, psychiatry, substance abuse treatment programs and Intensive Outpatient Treatment Programs (IOP).
