Why WaveNeuro/MeRT TMS?

Some of these patients have had diagnosable illnesses, such as depression, anxiety, or PTSD.

More of them just experience that things are not working right: thinking is slow, erratic or distracted, problem solving is hard, sleep is terrible, irritability is frequent, relationships with family members are difficult and may have become so tough that they no longer communicate with family members.  For others, work or school performance is below par.

There may or may not have been an event or two in their lives that has a bearing on things: head injuries and concussions in childhood or adult life, stress from military service or first responder duties or other devastating life events. Or they were just born with problems of some sort from the beginning. Others are struggling as they try to perform at their best as an athlete or communicator or organizer but while highly motivated, just cannot get things to come together. But regardless, all struggle and seek improvement.

As they search, they may have been given diagnoses or tried medications, which did not help or regrettably made things worse. Others have tried countless other alternatives only to be equally disappointed. Some have tried just hanging on as best they can. Many have been told that there really is nothing more to do, and others have turned to drinking or drugging to at least have some escape from the constant frustration of how their brain just does not work.

What can be offered that is likely to help, based on careful science, without using medication, drugs or substances?

Neuromodulation using WaveNeuro/MeRT TMS (Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation is one powerful answer. With this cutting-edge technique, we analyze what is going on in a person’ brain by looking very carefully at their brain health (using EEG analysis) and their heart rhythms (EKG analysis). If these analyses shows that the brain waves of the individual can be part of what leads to problems, then we can use TMS (Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation) treatment in a way uniquely individualized to your own brain to help you get better.

The resulting improvements in sleep, reduction in irritability, capacity to think clearly and problem solve are significant. Life and relationships improve, and many people report that for the first time in years, they feel like themselves. Hopelessness and despair come down and life begins to take an upward trend.

Traditional TMS is highly effective and is approved by the FDA to treat Major Depressive Disorder, OCD, and nicotine addiction. In Traditional TMS, we target the brain area treated based on your carefully reviewed diagnosis. The treatment is individualized at these standard locations based on your response and we use a variety of types of TMS (rTMS, TBS, accelerated, extended, deep and more) in a way customized to your diagnosis and response.

WaveNeuro/MeRT differs

With this approach to TMS, we determine where and how to treat you based on our detailed understanding of how your individual brain functions and then develop a plan for TMS intervention based on your brain. This customized approach to TMS intervention results in improvement in your brain health. We will repeat the EEG/EKG analysis at different times throughout treatment and re-adjust our TMS protocol to ensure the best possible outcome. Each TMS approach is valid and effective. Each can help when the other does not. Let us see which might help you and then discuss what we have to offer and its odds for success. Then you can decide.

What the Patients Think

I’m back! My TBI turned me into someone I barely recognised. I was drepressed, mean, and short-tempered. I pushed through life filled with frustration and a deep sense of sadness that this was it. I just had to keep pushing through like with an overwhelming tiredness. I’m so glad I was wrong. I think my direct reports and family are even more thankful. This treatment changed everything, and I am forever thankful

In the ensuing months after the concussion I just wasn’t myself. My academics began to suffer as well. I didn’t feel right. My EEG showed me that something had physically changed with how my brain functioned. After three days of treatment, I felt substantially better. After two weeks. I felt like I did before my injury. MeRT was life changing.
