At Neurology, Psychiatry and Balance Therapy Center, we utilize state of the art technologies and equipment to assist us in determining accurate diagnoses for and providing our patients with the most effective treatments.
Major Depressive Disorder is a highly prevalent condition which hampers a person’s ability to maintain relationships, a career and daily functioning. BrainsWay Deep TMS is an effective, non-invasive treatment which can help patients get their life back and regain calm and happiness. The treatment stimulates the brain regions responsible for depression using brief magnetic fields at an amplitude similar to that used in MRI technology. The therapy requires only daily 20-minute sessions over 4-6 weeks. BrainsWay Deep TMS has been proven to generate significant reduction of depressive symptoms, even in patients with severe, persistent depression, who tried several medications without improvement. The therapy has received an FDA approval, and is based on advanced patented technology. Best of all, BrainsWay Deep TMS does not cause systemic side effects.
A noninvasive, innovative treatment – is transforming the lives of OCD patients. It offers an effective, safe and non-invasive treatment that uses Deep Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation to treat OCD. The treatment performs magnetic stimulation of frontal brain structures and networks, targeting previously unreachable areas of the brain with its proprietary H7-coil, allowing it to effectively treat OCD. BrainsWay OCD has many advantages over other treatment options, as it is an outpatient procedure that is generally well tolerated and has no systemic side effects.

Balance is very complex and difficult to measure precisely. That is why we utilize the Biodex Balance System SD as a tool to measure precisely how well our patients can control their standing balance under a variety of conditions. Further, our Biodex system can also be used to help screen for fall risks, as well as a diagnostic tool to help us understand how severely a patient may be affected by a concussion or other neurologic disorder. By using this system, we can easily track our patients’ progress with their balance. Just as importantly, the Biodex Balance System SD has many training programs that we utilize to help our patients improve their balance and muscle function caused by injuries.
Have you ever looked at your eyes in the mirror while moving your head around? If so, you may have noticed that no matter which way you move your head, your eyes stay fixed on their reflexion in the mirror. Our vestibular system in our inner ear is what causes this to happen. If there is a problem with the vestibular system, we can often tell by studying the eyes. We use infrared goggles to look at patients’ eyes while we are performing various tests. This helps us to see if your dizziness is caused by your brain your, vestibular system, or a specific part of your vestibular system. Click here to see a video of one type of eye movement, nystagmus, that we look for with infrared goggles.
Like balance, walking is also very complex. There are many different aspects of walking that can be measured, such as how high you lift your foot, how straight your knee is when stepping, and the position of your torso. However, having a good step length is one of the most important measures that can help determine how well you can walk. Injuries and neurologic disorders like strokes can often affect your step length, making walking difficult or slow. Having a normal and symmetrical step length can help you move faster and more efficiently so you can get where you need to go effectively. We use the Biodex Gait Trainer 3 to give us feedback on our patients’ step length and speed while walking. This can help us help you relearn how to walk more normally and effectively. It is also another way to track your progress.
