Dr. Pages in South Tampa was not only one of the first to provide TMS Therapy in Florida but he has devoted his practice to advancing the technology.
Every patient is unique. We find that most patients have a combination of issues that they are struggling with. We have the experience to deviate from the standard protocol to tailor treatments to the specific needs of every patient.
Are you curious about TMS therapy? What is it, exactly? In this episode of PsychCentral.com’s podcast, Mental Health Made Simple, Dr. Pages and Dr. Hutton explain how Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation works and how it can help many patients with depression, OCD or smoking addiction.
How does TMS differ from ECT? Are there any side effects?
We understand that our patients are in challenging situations. That is why we take the utmost care in providing a safe, calming, spa-like facility that emanates positivity. We have five fully equipped TMS Therapy rooms and a caring staff to provide convenience and flexibility when scheduling your treatment.
Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) uses a targeted pulsed magnetic field, similar to what is used in an MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) machine. While the patient is awake and alert, NeuroStar TMS Therapy stimulates areas of the brain that are underactive in depression.
Drs. Kenneth Pages and Winderbaum Fernandez have been seamlessly co-managing the care of treatment resistant depression and mood disorder patients for over 10 years. In affiliation with Interventional Psychiatry of Tampa Bay we are able to offer patients the full complement of state of the art interventional psychiatric therapies. As one of the most experienced Interventional Psychiatrists in the country, Dr. Pages was not only one of the first to provide TMS Therapy in Florida but he has devoted his practice to advancing the technology. She is an internationally recognized Spravato provider and is actively involved in advancing this and other interventional approaches to help patients reach remission. Our novel protocols such as combined esketamine/TMS therapy for treatment resistant depression have resulted in full recovery with sustained benefits and enabled patients to minimize oral medication use or avoid more burdensome treatment options.
