Aydin as a prolific researcher is persistent about helping people suffering from OCD, easing their distress, and even offering medical treatments and advice to the patients having severe symptoms. Aydin is regarded for his unique approach globally after the application has shown significant results in the patients. 

Aydin’s TMS TMS (transcranial magnetic stimulation) for OCD is approved by FDA and clinically certified by and recognized by the European Union of Medical Specialists (UEMS). This method is also accredited by the European Accreditation Council for CME (EACCME). TMS when combined with Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) specifically targets the networks in the brain which are known to be particularly affected by OCD, including the deeper-lying structures. This special treatment created by Aydin offers the quickest solutions without any medication side effects, that are often present when approached with a different treatment course. 

The OCD treatment combining talking therapy CBT and TMS, uses magnetic pulses to stimulate a specific area in the brain in order to diminish the OCD symptoms. This treatment helps the patients to explore and understand alternative ways of thinking by challenging their beliefs through behavioral exercises. The underlying approach of Aydin’s approach to treating OCD is based on the proven fact that all the thoughts, feelings, and actions are inherently interconnected, and that negative thoughts and feelings can trap them in a vicious cycle which if left untreated can turn life-threatening. 

Aydin intricately designed this therapy with a therapeutic approach that enables a patient to become their own therapist and provide them with the necessary knowledge and tools to continue working towards the complete recovery from OCD. With the successful application of Aydin’s treatment, the patient will ultimately be able to handle repeated, persistent, and unwanted thoughts, urges, or images that are intrusive that cause distress or anxiety.

Currently, he is developing a mobile health app to help people who suffer from Panic Attacks and Anxiety. His future mobile health app projects include depression and OCD support. The combination of the latest technology devices and personal experience, knowledge, and expertise for the harm-reduction and therapeutic treatment by Aydin has undoubtedly put him at the forefront of the emerging medical accomplishments.
