NBC Pittsburgh Highlights Allegheny Health Network’s Success with Deep TMS


Allegheny Health Network’s Deep Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) therapy is offering hope for depression patients like Valerie Bojarski. Unlike medications, TMS utilizes magnetic pulses to alter brain activity. Sessions, lasting 4 to 20 minutes, are conducted five days a week for six weeks. Bojarski and over two dozen others in Pittsburgh have reported positive outcomes. Dr. Steven Forman, director of AHN Psych. Neuromodulation, expresses optimism about TMS’s effectiveness.
