Cornell: A Beautiful Community in the Santa Monica Mountains

Depression patients who enjoy walking, biking, hiking, and other outdoor activities as they are able can find lots to like about this community.
How Is TMS Treatment in Cornell Performed?
At Achieve TMS, we offer TMS therapy to patients who experience treatment-resistant depression. Our medical clinicians evaluate a patient’s symptoms and may recommend TMS be performed on its own or in combination with other depression therapy options.
Our Cornell TMS treatment is performed at our Agoura Hills office. To begin a TMS therapy session, we place a magnetic coil on a patient’s head, near the left temple. The coil is then used to send electromagnetic pulses to the patient’s brain. This stimulates neural activity in the brain and may help reduce depression symptoms.
TMS treatment in Cornell is performed over a period of six weeks, with five therapy sessions per week. A TMS session lasts approximately 20 minutes, and it is noninvasive and performed without anesthesia or medication.
After a TMS therapy session is finished, patients can resume everyday activities. There is no down time following TMS therapy, and treatment is generally well-tolerated.
To date, many patients have reported a reduction in depression symptoms or no further symptoms after TMS treatment. TMS also has few side effects, and patients who report side effects may experience only a slight headache or minor discomfort for the first few treatments.
