About Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS)

Dr. Gudapati also offers NeuroStar TMS therapy. TMS (Transcranial magnetic stimulation) therapy uses short pulses of magnetic fields to stimulate nerve cells in the area of the brain thought to control mood. It is sometimes referred to as rTMS which stands for repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation. TMS patients receiving TMS Therapy remain awake and alert during the procedure.

NeuroStar TMS Therapy ® is an outpatient procedure. The typical treatment course consists of at least 5 treatments per week over a 4-6 week period for 20-30 treatments. Each depression treatment session lasts approximately 19-37 minutes, depending on what the doctor determines is the correct protocol. NeuroStar TMS Therapy is:

  • Non-invasive, meaning that it does not involve surgery. It does not require any anesthesia or sedation, as the patient remains awake and alert during the treatment.
  • Non-systemic, meaning that it is not taken by mouth and does not circulate in the bloodstream throughout the body.
  • FDA cleared for patients who have not benefited from prior antidepressant treatment.

About Telepsychiatry 

Telepsychiatry is the process of providing psychiatric health care from a distance through technology, often videoconferencing. Telepsychiatry is subset of telemedicine and can involve providing a range of services including psychiatric evaluations, therapy, patient education and medication management.

Our telepsychiatry practice is powered by Doxy.me. All you need to start a telemedicine visit is a web link to the doctor’s Doxy.me room (e.g. doxy.me/DrG) using a standard computer or Doxy.me app on a mobile device. No special hardware or software are necessary. Doxy.me utilizes state-of-the-art security and encryption protocols, making it compliant with HIPAA and HITECH requirements.
