Overactive Bladder? Let’s Talk Axonics Therapy

April 10, 2024

Millions of Americans struggle with an Overactive Bladder (OAB), many may not even be aware that the day-to-day complications they live with are symptoms of OAB. Luckily, medical technology continues to grow and another solution to OAB has made its way to Austin Urology Institute: Axonics Therapy. At Austin Urology Institute, we’re committed to providing the latest advancements in urological care, and Axonics Therapy is a game-changer for individuals struggling with OAB symptoms.

Overactive Bladder Symptoms

OAB is a common condition characterized by a sudden, urgent need to urinate, often accompanied by frequent urination and sometimes urinary incontinence. It can significantly impact quality of life, leading to embarrassment, anxiety, and social withdrawal. While there are various treatment options available, including medications and behavioral therapies, some patients may not find adequate relief.

Axonics Therapy has been effective in treating people with OAB who have otherwise had little to no success with other therapies and remedies.  It’s a revolutionary approach to managing OAB symptoms that targets the underlying cause – nerve dysfunction. The Axonics System is an FDA-approved device that delivers mild electrical pulses to the sacral nerves, which control the bladder. By modulating these nerves, Axonics Therapy helps restore bladder function, reducing urgency, frequency, and incontinence episodes.

“How does Axonics Therapy Work?” 

During a minimally invasive procedure, a small device is implanted near the sacral nerves in the lower back. This device, about the size of a small USB drive, sends electrical impulses to the nerves, effectively regulating bladder activity. The minimally invasive nature of Axonics Therapy combined with the fact that it is rechargeable and designed to last for years means patients can enjoy long-term relief without the need for frequent interventions.

Living with an overactive bladder can be difficult, but this solution is simple. Want to know more?
