Managing Stool Incontinence with Axonics Therapy

April 5, 2024

Incontinence, Bladder, and Urinary Health Webinar Series

Bladder issues, urinary tract issues, and stool incontinence affect millions of people around the world. Many people may not even be aware that they are suffering from any of these illnesses or conditions. 

Today, we’re shining a spotlight on a groundbreaking solution for stool incontinence – Axonics Therapy. At Austin Urology Institute, we’re committed to providing comprehensive care for all urological conditions, and Axonics Therapy offers hope and relief for those struggling with stool incontinence.

Stool incontinence, also known as fecal incontinence, is a challenging condition characterized by the inability to control bowel movements, leading to unexpected leakage or accidents. It can have profound effects on one’s confidence, social interactions, and overall quality of life. While there are treatment options available such as dietary modifications and pelvic floor exercises, some individuals may continue to experience symptoms.

Enter Axonics Therapy

Axonics Therapy is a revolutionary approach to managing stool incontinence by targeting the underlying nerve dysfunction. The Axonics System, like its application in treating Overactive Bladder (OAB), delivers gentle electrical pulses to the sacral nerves, which play a crucial role in bowel control. By modulating these nerves, Axonics Therapy helps restore bowel function, which reduces episodes of stool incontinence and provides much-needed relief.

But how does it work in practice? During a simple, minimally invasive procedure, a small device is implanted near the sacral nerves in the lower back. This device, approximately the size of a USB drive, delivers controlled electrical impulses to the nerves, effectively regulating bowel function. The device is rechargeable and designed to provide long-term relief, offering a sustainable solution for managing stool incontinence.

We understand that living with stool incontinence can be challenging, which is why we’re excited to invite you to our upcoming webinar. Austin Urology Institute’s Urology FNP, Alex Hughes, will delve deeper into Axonics Therapy and its application in managing stool incontinence.
