What is Mindful TMS Neurocare in Chicago?
Mindful TMS is a unique center in the Chicago area for the best neuronavigation-guided Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) treatments. Our passion is helping those with major depressive disorder (MDD), obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), and other psychiatric and neurological conditions through scientifically proven technology and personalized care.
About Mindful TMS Treatment
TMS therapy is a non-medication, non-systemic, and non-invasive form of treatment for patients with MDD and OCD. Unlike antidepressant medications and electroconvulsive therapy (ECT), TMS is quick, easy, and virtually free of side effects as it does not enter the bloodstream.
TMS works by emitting magnetic pulses to the affected area of the brain. These magnetic pulses are very similar to those experienced during magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). These pulses work to activate the area of the brain that is implicated in the pathophysiology of depression and OCD. The patient remains awake and alert throughout the duration of the treatment and is cared for and monitored by a certified TMS Therapist.
The Best TMS Technology at Mindful TMS in Chicago
Our TMS systems are FDA-approved. We use revolutionary and cutting-edge technologies to help treat Major Depressive Disorder, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, and other psychiatric and neurological conditions. TMS therapy has a proven track-record of treatment efficacy, usability, and quality. Adding to the appeal of this treatment method is the fact that it is covered by Medicare, Blue Cross Blue Shield, and most commercial health insurance plans.
At Mindful TMS, we uniquely combine TMS treatments with state-of-the-art neuronavigation technology to achieve highly-targeted, exceptionally accurate stimulation. This accuracy yields better results than standard TMS treatments. Neuronavigation allows us to use a comprehensive database of brain scans to accurately navigate the brain and place the treatment coil on the correct target. Additionally, patients that have undergone an MRI may submit their own scan for more personalized treatment. Ultimately, neuronavigation eliminates "guess-and-check" head measurements and allows for precise, targeted treatment.
Unique Mindful TMS Philosophy
The Mindful TMS staff strives to relieve much of the administrative burden by providing a Seamless Experience: one of the three elements of our Mindful Approach. Additionally, we work to maximize TMS clinical outcomes by utilizing Neuronavigation Targeted TMS and our Personalized Care Program in each patients' course of TMS treatments.

Your TMS Therapy Consultation
Your initial consultation will allow you and your TMS Therapist to discuss your symptoms, treatment history, and whether TMS is an appropriate treatment option for you. Additionally, if you have not yet had a medical evaluation, our TMS Therapists will schedule an evaluation for you with one of our physicians. If our physician determines that you are a candidate for TMS, our team will work with your insurance provider to obtain coverage, review the cost of TMS with you, and schedule your treatment appointments.
