East Melbourne

Hi, my name is Prof. David Barton.

I am a highly experienced psychiatrist in the field of neurostimulation and my role is to oversee the Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) treatment service at VCPS' East Melbourne clinic.

TMS is a non-invasive treatment delivered by an external magnetic coil placed above the scalp to stimulate targeted brain areas.

TMS is noted as an effective treatment for treatment-resistant depression.

I specialise in general adult and geriatric psychiatry with a particular interest in neuropsychiatry acquired brain injury, and the association between depression and cardiovascular disease.

I have held a number of senior roles at South Eastern Hospital, Ballarat Health Services, and the University of Melbourne.
