What is theta-burst stimulation?

Theta-burst stimulation (also known as TBS) is a novel form of transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS or rTMS), filling the gap and providing patients with an alternative treatment. The treatment is safe, tolerable and an effective treatment modality with little or no side-effects. TBS works in the same way as TMS and is administered over the prefrontal cortex. The treatment inspires cortical activity to the region of the brain responsible for mood and emotion.
