Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS)
What Happens in a TMS Session?Patients begin with a consultation with one of our Vail Health Behavioral Health psychiatrists to determine if you are a candidate for receiving TMS therapy. During a TMS session, patients recline in a comfortable chair and a magnetic coil is placed against the patient’s scalp. The TMS coil makes a clicking sound and produces a tapping sensation during the treatment. Patients are awake for the entirety of the session and are able to talk, listen to music, or watch videos. Each treatment ranges from 3 to 20 minutes, depending on the treatment protocol prescribed. Daily (weekday) treatment sessions for 6-8 weeks (30-36 treatments total) are typically required. Patient’s are able to drive themselves home and immediately return to normal activity following their procedure.
How to Schedule a TMS Session:Our providers are administering TMS treatment to patients in-person at the Wiegers Mental Health Clinic located within the Edwards Community Health Campus. Once a patient has been approved for TMS, our financial navigation team will work closely with your insurance to identify coverage options.
