50 million Americans suffer with some form of overactive bladder (OAB) or urinary incontinence (bladder leakage). Seventy-five percent to 80% of them are women. Unfortunately, many women believe this is just part of “getting older.” It’s not.

Axonics® Therapy is a clinically proven solution for treating symptoms of OAB, including urge incontinence, fecal incontinence and urinary retention.

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.

  1. 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.
  2. 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.

Who Is a Good Candidate for Axonics® Therapy?

It is up to you and Dr. Pazona to determine if you are a good candidate for Axonics® Therapy. Axonics® Therapy is an approved treatment for patients suffering with:

  • Overactive bladder (OAB) – the urgent need to urinate, which may result in frequent urinary and/or incontinence (leakage) episodes
  • Urinary urgency frequency – the need to urinate 8 or more times a day
  • Urinary urgency incontinence (UUI) – the urgent need to urinate or trouble holding urine before making it to the restroom
  • Fecal (bowel) incontinence – sudden urges to pass stool and experience leakage of stool before making it to the restroom
  • Non-obstructive urinary retention (UR) – the inability to empty the bladder, which results in symptoms of frequent urination or trouble urinating
  • Axonics® Therapy is indicated for patients who have failed conservative treatments, such as lifestyle changes, physical therapy, or medications.
