Our office is preparing to offer BrainsWay Deep Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (dTMS) for assisting smoking cessation efforts in adults, representing the first FDA clearance in addiction for any TMS device.
Using BrainsWay’s patented H4-coil, the treatment generates electromagnetic pulses that stimulate neurons in brain structures associated with addiction – specifically the bilateral insula and prefrontal cortex. BrainsWay Deep TMS is proven to reach wider and deeper brain regions than traditional TMS devices.
Deep TMS is a well-tolerated, non-invasive treatment with no systemic side effects. It does not require a significant recovery period, and the 18-min treatment can easily be integrated into each patient’s day-to-day schedule.

Treatments Options for Smoking Cessation
Several treatments have been developed to treat smoking addiction, many of which have been found to be effective in combination:
- Lifestyle changes to protect against smoking addiction
- Nicotine Replacement Therapy
- Deep TMS
When it comes to evaluating and trying the available treatment options for smoking cessation, some options may not work the same way for everyone. Patients may need to combine different modalities to maintain long-term success
