Welcome to Golden Gate TMS

Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) is a new FDA approved procedure for treating depression that has not responded to antidepressant medications. Chronic depression can have a severe impact on the lives of sufferers and their families. Depression often causes great disability in terms of work or school functioning. TMS offers an alternative to medication treatment without the common side effects of antidepressants such as weight gain and sexual dysfunction. TMS is applied externally and acts only on a local area of the brain, so it has no side effects throughout the rest of the body. TMS often offers a successful alternative to traditional medication treatments.
