Bladder and/or bowel incontinence effects millions of people worldwide. The symptoms can make it hard to freely enjoy everyday events and can cause disruption in daily lives. If you experience bladder or bowel incontinence, it’s important to know effective solutions are available to treat these symptoms.
One treatment option we offer at Proliance Eastside Surgical Specialists is Axonics Therapy, helping patients regain control of their bladder and bowel symptoms and get back to living – confidently.
What is Axonics Therapy?
Axonics Therapy is a clinically proven solution for treating symptoms of overactive bladder (including urinary urgency incontinence), bowel (fecal) incontinence and urinary retention. It provides gentle stimulation to the nerves that control the bladder and bowel. The stimulation can help restore normal communication between the brain and the bladder/bowel which can result in an improvement of your overactive bladder, bowel incontinence and urinary retention symptoms. The Axonics System is small in size, safely delivering therapy with a miniaturized implant.
This minimally invasive treatment option offers:
- An opportunity to trial the therapy for 7-10 days to see if it works for you
- The potential for long-term relief – at least 15 years
- The chance to improve your quality of life
How does Axonics Therapy work?
The Evaluation Step: To see if Axonics Therapy is right for you, you will undergo a short period of therapy using a temporary system. The evaluation period allows you to experience the level of symptom relief the therapy may provide before you commit to long-term therapy.
Long-term Therapy: If you and your doctor determine that Axonics Therapy is right for you, you will have an outpatient procedure where the miniaturized Axonics implant is placed just beneath the skin in the upper part of your buttock.
Backed by clinical studies, Axonics Therapy is clinically proven to regain bladder and bowel control and deliver clinically meaningful improvement in quality of life.
- 93% of patients were satisfied with their therapy
- 89% of patients experienced a ≥50% reduction in UUI symptoms
- <2% of patients reported discomfort at the implant site
