Neuropsychiatric disorders are very common in the United States and around the world, resulting in tremendous suffering and disability.
Swedish understands that many mental disorders do not respond to treatment with psychiatric medications or psychotherapy.
Seattle Neuropsychiatric Treatment Center (SeattleNTC) is a program of the Swedish Neuroscience Institute.
SeattleNTC provides comprehensive evaluation and care with a number of brain stimulation therapies which use electricity, magnetic pulses, or surgical implants to directly activate the brain.
These treatments can be helpful for a select group of “treatment-resistant” psychiatric conditions including depression, obsessive compulsive disorder and related conditions.
