BOSTON, Oct. 11, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Keith Ablow, MD, considered one of the five most influential psychiatrists alive today (GESciencePrize.org) and one of the 35 most famous psychiatrists to ever live (ranker.com), has announced that his psychiatry practice will be one of the first in the world to offer Brainsway Deep Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation to treat Obsessive Compulsive Disorder.
"Deep TMS by Brainsway is now FDA-approved to treat the debilitating symptoms of OCD," Dr. Ablow said. "We look forward to using this amazing, new technology to help those suffering with this condition."
TMS uses magnetic pulses to balance the electrical activity in the brain and to, potentially, promote restoration of damaged nerve cells. In the past, it has been used to treat patients with major depression—curing half of those who never benefited from any other treatment.
The TMS treatment for Obsessive Compulsive Disorder will be integrated into Dr. Ablow's groundbreaking Mind Body MedSpa called Blue Water Wellness, located in Newburyport, Massachusetts (www.bluewaterwellness.com).
Dr. Ablow was also among the first psychiatrists in the world to harness the power of Ketamine intravenous treatments to treat depression. He has treated patients around the United States and in many foreign nations. He has appeared on the Today Show, Good Morning America, Oprah, Fox News, CNN, 20/20, Inside Edition and many other national television broadcasts over 1,000 times.
Dr. Ablow also treats clients with psychotherapy and medication management by phone, Skype or in person. Contact him via [email protected] or by calling 978-462-1125.
