I have been consulting the doctors at Cadabam’s for over 6 months now for my father who has dementia. The doctors and staff at the hospital are very polite and kind and have provided excellent support and care right from day one. They not only explain the treatment plan thoroughly but also take out the time to make sure we understand complications and side effects that could come along the way. If you or your loved one is dealing with any mental health issues, I highly recommend Cadabam’s.
I’m very happy with the doctors, medical staff, and facilities at Cadabam’s hospital. Apart from being highly skilled in the field, the doctors and other medical staff are also very patient and supportive. Right from diagnosing the issue to prescribing medicines and creating the perfect treatment plan, they are with you every step of the way. I am glad I reached out to the team at Cadabam’s for counseling sessions.
I have observed great improvements in my son who has autism. The treatment plan created by the doctors has helped reduce the symptoms and he now is slowly learning new skills that assist him in his day-to-day activities. I cannot thank the team at Cadabam’s enough for giving my son the opportunity to have a happy and healthy childhood.
Excellent doctors, excellent team of medical staff, excellent facilities. From the people to the facilities and infrastructure, Cadabam’s has everything you need to address and improve your mental health illnesses.
I’m extremely grateful to the doctors and the entire team at Cadabams for creating an action plan to help me with my anxiety. I was finding it very difficult to maintain a social life and even focus on my career because of my severe anxiety. But now that I have been meeting with the team for over a year, I can proudly say that I have gotten much better at understanding and dealing with my anxiety. Thank you Cadabam’s!
My wife and I were not able to maintain a healthy relationship due to a lot of personal issues. Just when we thought our marriage would be over, we decided to seek couple’s counseling at Cadabam’s. The team of therapists and psychologists helped us build back our relationship and taught us how to communicate better and reduce conflicts in our day to day life.
I used to run around to consult different professionals for cmy son’s treatment. At Cadabam’s, it was so much more convenient. From psychiatrists to rehabilitation, they had it all. I am really happy with how they have helped my son and I can see immense changes in him.
What really struck me was how polite and understanding the professionals were. We availed home care services from Cadabams and the professional was so understanding. They took their time, spoke to all the members, and gave us an in-depth understanding of the illness. We have now started coming in for regular sessions. It’s worth it!
It was the first time we had faced something like this. Our daughter was going through immense strain and wasn’t responding to anything we said. That was when we contacted Cadabams, and we were surprised by how prompt they were with treatment. They treated our situation as an emergency and took immense care of our daughter.
Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (rTMS) is a brain stimulation therapy that helps individuals manage depression and anxiety-related issues. Functional since 1985, rTMS treatment involves focusing on specific areas of the brain and stimulating them with a magnet. rTMS treatment elicits desired effects in the brain that helps with a wide range of mental health disorders, including depression, psychosis, anxiety, OCD, and more.
At Cadabams Hospitals, we have a stellar team of psychiatrists along with specialist doctors, therapists, psychologists, and registered mental health nurses, who are experts in rTMS psychology and rTMS psychiatry. We offer quality rTMS treatment with successful outcomes.
rTMS is a medicine-free treatment that’s suggested by a psychiatrist or a doctor as an adjunct to the main therapy or when traditional therapies or antidepressant medications are unable to provide expected relief for the individual.
rTMS is a popular procedure that is used to treat depression and usually chosen after both medication and psychotherapy have failed. It’s also important to explore antidepressant medications before moving on to rTMS therapy. Generally, patients choose rTMS treatment when they’ve used up all other options. rTMS is also for those patients who have a greater risk of seizures and may not support anesthesia.
The rTMS device produces a series of strong magnetic signals to the brain by the use of electromagnetic coils. The coil passes the impulse to the brain nerves through the device when it’s placed on the forehead of the individual. Initially, the medical professional analyses the area of the brain that needs to be stimulated.
Then the specific nerve cells in the brain are targeted and induced. As the rTMS therapy progresses, the brainwave regulations improve, thereby providing relief to the individual by reducing the symptoms.
rTMS therapy is effective against illnesses such as depression and anxiety. rTMS is a non-invasive neuromodulation technique that has a greater effect on several mood-related issues and disorders. rTMS treatment helps to manage other neurological and psychological disorders such as:
Yes, rTMS is a completely safe treatment method. Furthermore, it doesn’t require any medications such as needles and anesthetics. rTMS induces only the pure magnetic impulse to enter the body. rTMS treatment comes with a few minor side effects (mentioned below). Other than that, rTMS has lesser side effects when compared to the other side effects that are associated with antidepressants and medications.
No sedation or anesthetic is required. Most times, when patients undergo a major procedure, it usually involves anesthesia or sedation, which can pose a life risk as well; sedation and anesthesia can cause loads of fear and anxiety.
Unlike sedation, which can have negative side effects like confusion, vomiting, cognitive dysfunction, and delirium, electroconvulsive therapy or rational emotive therapy does not need sedation or anesthesia; this will minimize a lot of the risks.
Few side effects – rTMS has shown little to no side effects or safety risks. Only ten percent of patients have experienced some discomfort such as mild headaches. There are rare cases where rTMS has caused a seizure. Hence, proper screening should be done before receiving rTMS therapy.
Quick onset – Almost 75% of patients will see a response with rTMS therapy, in a clinical setting. This is defined as a drop in depression symptoms by half. Around 50% of patients who have received this rTMS treatment have experienced mild symptoms.
rTMS patients can see some improvements within the first two weeks of treatments, unlike some medications that take the body many weeks to adjust to the dosage.
No recovery period – Since rTMS does not need any anesthetic or sedation, there is no need for a recovery period after a session.
Cognitive improvements – Usually, depression can cause cognitive impairments, and patients will see an increase in cognitive functioning. Studies have shown that rational emotive therapy, in high frequencies, can improve attention, memory, and executive functioning like decision making and reasoning.
Other benefits include –
Ideally, going for around 20 sessions is recommended. The frequency of the sessions should be at least 2 to 3 times a week. You can expect to get results within 8 to 12 sessions.
