Transcranial magnetic stimulation

Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) is a novel, noninvasive intervention that is effective in treating depression. At Mayo Clinic, the TMS research group had involvement in the multicenter trial that led to FDA approval for this treatment technique. The group is currently involved in research examining the use of TMS in additional patient populations, such as those with adolescent treatment-resistant depression and pain.
