 March 20, 2012, Evansville, IN -- On March 14, 2012, nationally known Dr. Mehmet Oz host of "The Dr. Oz Show" introduced his audience to transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), an innovative treatment for depression that is non-invasive and drug-free. Dr. Oz discussed TMS in an episode about exciting new treatments for chronic pain, depression, and weight conditions. "I believe this could be an effective treatment," said Dr. Oz. "Why is every psychiatrist in the country not thinking about this for their patients?"

NeuroStar® TMS Therapy is specifically indicated for the treatment of Major Depressive Disorder in adult patients who have failed to achieve satisfactory improvement from one prior antidepressant medication at or above the minimal effective dose and duration in the current episode. In clinical trials with NeuroStar TMS Therapy, these patients had been treated with a median of four medication treatment attempts, one of which achieved criteria for adequate dose and duration.

TMS is available in the TriState area of Illinois, Kentucky, and Indiana at the Cady Wellness Institute founded and directed by psychiatrist Louis B. Cady, MD.   Dr. Cady uses the NeuroStar® Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) which offers state-of-the-art TMS treatment for depression. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved NeuroStar® TMS in 2008 for the treatment of major depressive disorder in adult patients who have failed to achieve satisfactory improvement from one prior antidepressant medication.

Several medical societies, including the American Psychiatric Association and the Canadian Network for Mood and Anxiety Treatment have listed TMS therapy in their guidelines for the management of clinical depression that is unresponsive to other treatment.

"Depression, the most common mental disorder in the United States, is a debilitating disease that affects approximately 20 million people. Unfortunately, many people do not achieve sufficient relief with antidepressant medications or suffer systemic side-effects from them," says Dr. Cady. "TMS is a breakthrough technology that offers a safe, effective and FDA-approved treatment for depression when conventional medication therapy just doesn't work. Because of our individualized approach to TMS, about 80% of our patients respond positively and many totally go into clinical remission from their depression, which is a better success rate than that of patients treated with medications alone."

Dr. Cady brings a wide and diverse background to the practice of functional neuropsychiatry and the TMS program at Cady Wellness Institute. Originally trained as a classical pianist and receiving two degrees, with honors, from the Conservatory of Music in Kansas City, Missouri, he then followed his childhood dream of becoming a physician, training at the University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston, Texas, and then interning and doing his residency in general adult psychiatry at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN. Additional age management medicine training at Cenegenics Medical Institute followed. At present, Dr. Cady and the staff at Cady Wellness Institute use all healing modalities supported by the peer-reviewed medical literature in their quest to achieve total wellness of the patient.

TMS is a 40-minute outpatient procedure that is prescribed by a psychiatrist and performed in a psychiatrist's office. The treatment is typically administered daily for 4-6 weeks.

Of course, the litmus test of this treatment will be in independent follow-up studies done in the years to come. And for now, it is good to have yet another treatment option available to anyone seeking help with his or her depression. But the question Dr. Oz asked remains: "Why is every psychiatrist in the country not thinking about this for their patients?"

Dr. Cady offers TMS treatment at Cady Wellness Institute, 4727 Rosebud Lane, Newburgh, IN. For more information, please call (812) 429-0772 or visit www.indianatms-cadywellness.com.
