PS 039: Treating Depression with Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS)

Daniela White (M.D.) is a board certified child, adolescent and adult psychiatrist. Dr. White finished her residency in Adult Psychiatry at Baylor College of Medicine in 2000 and continued her training in Child and Adolescent Psychiatry at the same institution till 2002. During her training, she served as Chief Resident at Baylor Clinic in 2000 and Chief Fellow Resident in the Fellowship Program in 2002. She received her Diploma in Psychodynamic Therapy after she completed the two year training program at the Houston Galveston Psychoanalytic Institute between 2000 and 2002.

During this session, Dr. White and I discuss Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation as a medication free approach to treating depression. You’ll learn how TMS is different from other neurostimulation modalities and who can benefit. We also discuss delivery methods, rates of remission, and ongoing research for future use in other areas of mental health. It’s a fascinating topic that will make you look at technology in a whole new way.
