MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- More than 15 million adults have depression and there is now a new treatment available in our area.
CBS 58 Spoke to Dr. Hong Yin at 'New Frontiers' on Monday.
It's the first facility in Milwaukee to offer Deep TMS therapy.
Patients put on a helmet and it stimulates the brain using magnetic pulses.
"People who have depression, certain areas of the brain are underactive, that electric field excites the neurons," said Dr. Hong Yin.
Sessions are short -- roughly 20 minutes long.
Some patients couple Deep TMS with depression medication.
