Saratoga Springs, N.Y. – Dr. Manuel Astruc, owner of Manuel Astruc, M.D. & Associates, is pleased to announce his practice has acquired the first Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) machine in Saratoga County.
BrainsWay’s Deep TMS Therapy is a non-invasive treatment option proven to offer significant results by directly stimulating deeper and broader areas of the brain, effectively treating conditions such as depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder and nicotine addiction. It is most effective for medication-resistant patients who experience little to no symptom relief through antidepressants and psychotherapy.
The simple, FDA-approved procedure requires a series of 30-minute sessions over several weeks. There is no lengthy recovery period, and patients can drive themselves to and from treatment sessions. And, there are no significant, long-lasting or adverse side effects.
TMS therapy can help patients improve their mood, energy, productivity and life balance. The technology advances the treatment of mental health disorders without medications and side effects.
“My goal is to help patients have get better and stay better,” said Dr. Manuel Astruc. “As TMS developed an impressive track record of success, I wanted to bring this solution to my practice to help patients who are frustrated that medication and psychotherapy aren’t working. TMS allows me to help them finally find relief and finally feel better.”
Patients can schedule an evaluation to discover if TMS is right for them by calling (518) 583-7410.
