Are bladder or bowel control symptoms disrupting your life? You are not alone. Millions of people worldwide suffer from these life-altering symptoms.
There is a solution for you. Sacral Neuromodulation (SNM) is an advanced therapy option to treat your symptoms of overactive bladder, urge incontinence, bowel incontinence, and urinary retention. This therapy is a clinically proven solution to help people regain control.
SNM provides gentle stimulation to the nerves that control the bladder and bowel. The stimulation can restore normal communication between the brain and the bladder and bowel, which can result in an improvement of your symptoms.
The treatment can be a life changing event. SNM Therapy can help to restore normal bladder or bowel function and has been used to treat 200,000 patients worldwide.
To find out if this treatment option is right for you, schedule a consultation with Dr. Molden.
Who Will Benefit from Sacral Neuromodulation (SNM)?
Patients with overactive bladder, chronic urinary retention, urge incontinence, voiding dysfunction, bowel dysfunction and chronic pain syndromes can benefit. Indeed, it may be the only therapy available in some patient groups. In patients with chronic urinary retention, the only known forms of treatment are clean intermittent self-catheterization (CISC) or indwelling suprapubic/transurethral catheters. At times CISC can be a painful and traumatic process, and SNM offers an effective therapeutic alternative.
Dr. Molden is experienced treating patients with two different SNM approaches – Axonics and Interstim. Make an appointment for a consultation today to find if this is the best course of action for you.
Axonics Therapy is a clinically proven solution for treating symptoms of overactive bladder (including urinary urgency incontinence), bowel (fecal) incontinence and urinary retention1.
