Dr. Louis Cady straddles the world between science and art. Trained first as a classical pianist, he went on to obtain two degrees, with honors, from the Conservatory of Music of the University of Missouri at Kansas City, before obtaining his medical degree in 1989 from the University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston, Texas. He then trained in psychiatry at the world-famous Mayo Clinic, beginning his practice of child, adolescent, adult, and forensic psychiatry in Evansville, Indiana in 1993.
In addition to his conventional medical training in medicine and psychiatry, Dr. Cady has subsequently received additional training in Age Management Medicine from the Cenegenics Medical Institute in Las Vegas, Nevada, adding that modality into his practice.
Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation. TMS is a state of the art, FDA approved treatment for depression, which treats this condition by shooting pulses of magnetic waves into a certain section of the brain - the left dorsolateral prefrontal cortex. Unlike the "shock treatments" made infamous in such movies as "One Flew Over the Cookoo's Nest," TMS is a remarkably well tolerated treatment, which involves NO anesthesia, NO seizure, NO loss of consciousness, and NO medications. Patients are completely awake throughout the procedure, and actual psychotherapy (or "talk therapy") can be accomplished right during the appointment.
In this very complete presentation, Dr. Cady demonstrates the operation of the equipment, the positioning of the patient, how effective TMS is, the way it works, and its excellent tolerability. He also reviews the process at CWI of "hot-rodding" our TMS machine in creative ways to get maximum amounts of improvement in minimum time (which translates into minimizing the patient's total out of pocket cost)
