Center for Focused Care Provides Innovative and Effective Non-Drug Treatment for Depression

ERIE, Pa., March 27, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- The Center for Focused Care offers an impactful, drug-free treatment for depression through its Food and Drug Administration-cleared Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) program, powered by MagVenture. Dr. Sipple and his team at the Center for Focused Care are the region's first facility to offer this powerfully effective treatment. 

During a TMS treatment, magnetic pulses are delivered through a magnetic coil to stimulate nerve cells in the parts of the brain controlling the mood. Repeated stimulation of this area of the brain can have an antidepressant effect on people suffering from major depressive disorder, even cases of depression that have been historically treatment resistant. TMS therapy was cleared by the FDA in 2008. 

The exclusive Express TMS® therapy, a three-minute treatment available through a MagVenture device, is offered by Dr. Sipple and reduces treatment course by up to five hours.

"The Express TMS® treatment has been life changing for me," said Donnie, a patient at the Center for Focused Care. "I've had decent results with medication but TMS has changed my life and outlook completely - more than I could have ever dreamed!"

Dr. Sipple reports a significant improvement in helping patients with no side effects when using the TMS treatment. 

"I know how difficult it is to live with depression and have built an empathetic and caring practice devoted to helping people," said Dr. Sipple, who founded the Center for Focused Care to focus on treating major depressive disorders. "It's astounding to witness the relief my patients feel within a week or two of their first treatment. In fact, more than 90 percent of the patients we treat using the Express TMS® therapy report a significant improvement in their depression and more than 66 percent report a total remission in their depression. These impressive results far outpace the national averages for conventional treatment."

Donnie added, "This treatment is far beyond any expectations I ever imagined and has made me feel like an entirely new person." 

The Center for Focused Care is the first facility in the Northwestern Pennsylvania region to offer this powerful and effective treatment for treatment-resistant depression. The three-minute Express TMS® therapy is offered exclusively through a MagVenture device.
