hi
thanks for using healthcare magic

OCD is chronic illness and need lone term treatment. If u r not getting response with drugs, u can go for rTMS, but it is not approved for OCD. It is in initially phase of study whether it is beneficial in OCD or not. It is very costly may be upto one lakh for whole treatment course. There r few hospital in Delhi, mumbai, kolkotawhich have rtms facility.

Thanks
