New Castle, PA – Compassion Mental Health Services the first and the only provider of Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation in the area for the treatment of clinical depression and obsessive compulsive disorder, is opening a state-of-the-art center in New Castle, PA area on January 2, 2020. Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) Center at Compassion Mental Health Services offers a new, safe and effective option for patients suffering from depression and obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) whose symptoms persist despite prior treatment attempts with antidepressant medications. TMS therapy is the first and only FDA-approved treatment for depression and OCD that does not require surgery or medication. TMS therapy ranks among the most technologically advanced treatments available for depression and OCD. Santiago A. Almanzar MD, Founder and CEO for Compassion TMS Center, states “The new center will bring hope and additional effective treatments for depression, a serious and life-threatening condition that affects millions of people. We are committed to making a difference in the lives of patients living with treatment resistant depression.”

The CMHS TMS Center will be offering three FDA approved groundbreaking TMS technologies, including Neurostar repetitive TMS, Brainsway Deep TMS, and Magventure TMS. In addition to Spravato, a newly FDA approved Esketamine nasal spray for treatment resistant depression. TMS therapy is covered by nearly every major commercial insurance carrier and Medicare in the U.S. In more than 60 clinical studies globally, TMS has consistently demonstrated statistically significant response and remission rates. This sedation free therapy is well tolerated by patients causing no adverse effects nor memory loss. TMS Treatment sessions are prescribed 5 days per week for 6 weeks, with each session lasting 18-20 minutes. Since initiating our TMS program less than 6 months ago, CMHS has delivered over 800 TMS treatments. Most patients receiving treatment showed evidence of response or full symptom remission in the first 5 weeks after treatment. In addition to symptom relief, a third of our patients have had full remission of depressive symptoms.
