VNS Therapy™ + traditional treatment delivered superior reduction in depression symptoms vs traditional treatment alone over 5 years.
Nearly 7 in 10 patients had a significant improvement in their depressive symptoms.
More than 4 in 10 patients fully or almost fully recovered from their depressive symptoms.
