AND BRAIN HEALTH
Daniel Franc, MD, PhD

818.900.0611 | calineuro.com
Following his medical and doctoral training in neuroimaging, Dr. Daniel Franc trained at the UCLA Department of Neurology. The doctor and his staff use new tools and technologies in neuroimaging and brain stimulation at his clinic in Agoura Hills to diagnose and help treat mood disorder, memory loss, chronic pain, movement disorders, epilepsy and other neurological problems. The Agoura Hills clinic specializes in transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) to directly treat depression and other mood disorders. TMS delivers repetitive magnetic pulses to directly stimulate neurons and brain circuits, improving symptoms of depression. “We now understand which parts of the brain are affected by depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder, and other brain disorders,” says Dr. Franc. “Science has finally given us the tools to directly treat these dysfunctional circuits. I’m excited to improve the functioning of my patients’ minds and put them on a path to brain health.”
TMS is especially suited for those looking to treat their depression and other mood symptoms without relying on antidepressants or other psychoactive medications. It is FDA approved, safe, and frequently more effective than prescription antidepressants without many of the side effects. “We love getting to know patients who are able to restart their lives after effectively treating their depression and other mood disorders,” explains Dr. Franc. Once they integrate a healthy lifestyle and brain health habits, patients can look forward to a long-term recovery.
