Conditions We Treat
- Bipolar Disorder
Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) is a novel form of Brain Stimulation used to treat patients whose condition(s) has not improved through conventional approaches.
Read about our patients' success stories. In a series of documented case studies by Dr. Stubbeman, see the effect of TMS as a treatment solution for conditions such as depression and tinnitus.

Tracking the Risks and Rewards of Transcranial Magnetic StimulationFor the first time in many years, John Elder Robison entered a sixth-floor lab at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and settled into a chair. He was there to demonstrate — although not actually repeat — a procedure known as transcranial magnetic stimulation, or TMS, in which electromagnetic impulses are fired into carefully targeted areas of a patient’s brain.
Penn Research Reveals Brain Region Crucial for Using Boundaries to NavigatePart of what differentiates that scene from a face or an object is the fact that it has boundaries, and University of Pennsylvania researchers Joshua Julian, Russell Epstein, Jack Ryan and Roy Hamilton aimed to parse out which part of the brain helps perceive those borders. What they learned, through two experiments involving transcranial magnetic stimulation, or TMS,...
Magnetic Brain Stimulation Might Treat Cocaine AddictionStimulating part of the brain with magnetic pulses may offer the first therapeutic treatment for cocaine addiction, a small new study suggests.
Noninvasive Brain Stimulation Helps Treat Cocaine AddictionEarly results suggest that repetitive transcranial magnetic brain stimulation (rTMS) reduces both substance use and cravings in cocaine addicts, offering hope of a novel medical treatment for patients with this addiction.
At the Library: Getting through depression without drugsA resident of Danbury, Rhodes is a wife, mother and former advertising executive. She is now a proponent of Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS), a noninvasive procedure that uses magnetic pulses to stimulate nerve cells in the brain to improve symptoms of depression.
People Fighting Depression Discover Little-Known TreatmentThe treatment, repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS), could help many of the patients who remain trapped by major depression even after trying a whole menu of antidepress
Pilot Study on rTMS Shows Promise for Treating Cocaine AddictionIn a 32-participant trial, the group undergoing transcranial magnetic stimulation had significantly more abstinence and lower cravings than those receiving pharmacological therapies.
TMS offers hope for depression sufferersTranscranial magnetic stimulation, or TMS, is a relatively new treatment for depression. It produces magnetic pulses similar to those found in MRI machines, but precisely targeted to certain areas of the brain to produce a therapeutic response.
