    The Department has started the Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (r-TMS) service since 2016. This is a non-invasive treatment, and a painless procedure, where the patient comfortably relaxes while a train of magnetic waves are passed through his brain, which in turn generates a mild electric current in the brain. It is used for several conditions including depression, obsessive compulsive disorder, certain pain conditions, and in addictions as an adjunct therapy.

    • There will be a designated JR, and consultant I/C for rTMS services. The SR in room 205 of the OPD will be responsible for day-to-day guidance and optimum utilization of the services of the JR
    • Cases for rTMS will be referred to rTMS service from Department of Psychiatry as well as other Departments in the hospital
    • Tuesday is designated as the day on which patient referred for rTMS will be evaluated and treatment protocols decided and set up in the rTMS chamber
    • rTMS consent will be taken from the patient/patient‖s relative and to be signed by the consultant I/C of the service of the case
    • Proper administration of rTMS to be ensured by the JR and supervised by SR and consultant I/C whenever necessary
    • Regular evaluation of the patient with rTMS in terms of benefits and side effects will be done as per the proforma and rating scales
    • Proper functioning and maintenance of rTMS machine and other equipment to be ensured by JR posted in rTMS
    • Proper documentation of the rTMS session in the patient files, OPD card, rTMS Register and SPSS files to be done by JR posted in rTMS

    About DDTC

    One of the major influences in my training as a psychiatrist was that of Dr. Robert A. Moore of the University of Michigan, USA. He was the Director of Residency Training while I trained there (1963-65).
