Neuronetics, developer of the leading transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) therapy, NeuroStar Advanced Therapy, is opening NeuroStar University. This will be the industry’s first brick-and-mortar TMS training facility, located in the BB&T building in Uptown Charlotte.
To celebrate this milestone, Neuronetics is hosting a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the grand opening on the afternoon of September 13th, with special appearance from NeuroStar patient advocate, U.S. Veteran Daniel Cooke. Daniel found relief from his debilitating symptoms of major depressive disorder (MDD) using the FDA-cleared, non-drug treatment after trying multiple prescription medications and several suicide attempts. At the ribbon-cutting ceremony, Daniel will share his story and how Terry Wise, co-founder of TMS of the Carolinas helped him find treatment for his MDD with NeuroStar, giving him hope and energy to help other Charlotte-area veterans in similar situations.
NeuroStar University’s goal is to help train more practices across the country to help patients like Daniel. Open to attendees from NeuroStar practices at no charge, the classes will allow them to learn techniques to efficiently use the NeuroStar system and discuss ways to reach and educate more patients on a non-drug option to treat MDD. By hosting several classes a month, NeuroStar University is excited to help contribute money and energy into the community of uptown Charlotte by inviting attendees from out of town to enjoy Charlotte’s charming city and local accommodations.
In honor of September being Suicide Prevention Month, NeuroStar is announcing their mission to treat 166,240 people with depression over the next five years. At the current suicide rate, 3,325 lives will have been saved, in addition to changing thousands of lives affected by depression. NeuroStar was also recently cleared by the FDA to treat patients suffering from anxious depression.
