Overactive Bladder Treatment with Axonics Therapy in Charleston, SC
Overactive bladder (OAB) is a common condition that affects millions of people in the United States. It is characterized by a sudden and frequent urge to urinate, often resulting in involuntary bladder contractions that can cause leakage or urinary incontinence. While OAB is more common in women, it can also affect men.
Axonics Therapy is a new, innovative treatment option for OAB that has been approved by the FDA. It involves the use of a small, implantable device that sends electrical impulses to the sacral nerves located near the base of the spine. These nerves are responsible for controlling the bladder and surrounding muscles. The device helps to regulate nerve activity, reducing the frequency and intensity of bladder contractions, and improving bladder function.

How does Axonics Therapy work?
Axonics Therapy provides gentle stimulation to the nerves that control the bladder and bowel, which can restore normal control and result in symptom improvement.
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.
