About TMS Therapy

Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) is an FDA approved non-medication based option for treating depression. It generates a magnetic field that turns on and off quickly which creates an electric current. This activates cells in the brain that tend to be under-active in depression and also promotes release of neurotransmitters that help mood. TMS targets the part of the brain specifically involved in mood regulation. TMS also works on a concept called neuroplasticity. Stimulating the left prefrontal cortex can induce the brain into creating new pathways for effective transmission. Dr. Yin offers other evidence-based treatments too.

The patented H coil has been found to help patients achieve remission in as many as half of the patients and up to a 75% response rate in other patients who were unable to get sufficient relief from their depression with conventional treatment (such as medication management and/or psychotherapy).

Why New Frontiers TMS LLC versus elsewhere?

Dr. Hong Yin is not only experienced at providing high quality TMS. She is a strong advocate of practicing evidence based (in other words, substantiated in the medical literature to be effective) treatments whether it is TMS or not. Numerous studies have demonstrated the efficacy of a multipronged approach as being superior to monotherapy/single modality therapy in various psychiatric conditions. The reason being is that how we feel is affected by a multitude of factors at play. To form an effective plan, we must have a good idea of what the underlying causes are. At New Frontiers TMS LLC, our aim is to get an accurate diagnostic picture and then cater your treatment/medical advice to your individual circumstances. These may often include evidence-based medication management (the right class, mechanism of action, duration of treatment, and dosage) as well as various psychotherapy modalities (e.g. dialectical behavioral therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, exposure response prevention). She is interested in not only offering you treatment options that are helpful but in helping you formulate a plan to help you sustain the therapeutic benefits.
