Beyond Depression: Use of TMS for the Treatment of Pain, Tinnitus, and Other Neuropsychiatric Illnesses

Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (rTMS) is indicated for the treatment of Major Depressive Disorder (MDD) and Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD). The technique also can be beneficial for the off-label treatment of other conditions including chronic pain, tinnitus, and addictions, among other neuropsychiatric illnesses. This session will review the technique of rTMS treatment, possible mechanisms of action, and applications of TMS to conditions beyond MDD and OCD.

Surgical Therapies for Psychiatric Diseases

Medication and therapeutic paradigms are continually advancing the treatment of psychiatric disease. Yet a large population of patients remains refractory to noninvasive treatments. Surgical therapies for treatment-resistant depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder, and others have an extended track record of efficacy, and are evolving along with our technological capabilities, such as minimally invasive neurostimulation (e.g., deep brain stimulation). These technical advances are paralleled by advances in machine learning applied to neuroimaging, electrophysiology, and behavioral biomarkers of disease. This session will introduce the attendee to the current state of the art in surgical therapies for psychiatric disease, highlighting deep brain stimulation, vagus nerve stimulation, and lesioning procedures.
