Do you get sudden, strong urges to urinate and are unable to control it? Do you go to the restroom 8 or more times a day? Do you have accidental leakage before you make it to the restroom? If you answered “Yes” to any of these questions, you may suffer from overactive bladder or urinary incontinence.
What Causes Bladder Leaks And Incontinence?
Bladder leakage, urinary incontinence or overactive bladder symptoms are not a normal part of aging. Millions
of people worldwide suffer from these life-altering symptoms. 1,2 These symptoms may occur because of
abnormal communication between the brain and the bladder. This may lead to the feeling of an urgent need
to urinate. You may also experience a need to rush to the restroom and leak or lose urine before you make it
to the restroom.
There is good news. Treatment options are available to help regain control of your bladder. Doctors are now
offering Axonics® Therapy, a long-lasting solution that is helps regain bladder control and delivers meaningful
improvements in quality of life*.
What is Axonics Therapy?
Axonics Therapy is an advanced treatment option that works by providing gentle stimulation to the nerves that control the bladder and bowel, which can help restore normal control and result in symptom improvement.
If you and your doctor believe you are a candidate for Axonics Therapy, you will first try the therapy for a brief test period that allows you and your doctor to see if the therapy provides satisfactory reduction of your symptoms. If it is determined that the therapy is right for you, you will have an outpatient procedure where a miniaturized Axonics implant is placed just beneath the skin in the upper part of your buttock.
