The Neuroscience Center at Lakeside was established to provide patients with safe and effective therapy that can treat the symptoms of a multitude of treatment-resistant psychological illnesses.
For many years, ECT has been sown to be effective in severely depressed patients when medications were not effective. Although there have been many advances in the treatment of mental disorders in recent years, ECT remains the most effective, fastest and safest treatment for many cases.
In 2011, the Neuroscience Center at Lakeside began providing Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) Therapy for the treatment of depression. This outpatient procedure is performed under the supervision of an attending psychiatrist while the patient is awake and alert. Most treatment regimens are administered for 4-6 weeks. Since the late 1990’s, physicians have used TMS to treat major Depressive Disorder in adult patients who have failed to achieve satisfactory improvement from antidepressant medications.
