A Technological Leap
In Preventing Urge & Leaks

What Axonics™
Sacral Neuromodulation Solves

Bladder control problems are treatable and manageable conditions that do not have to be a normal part of aging or a fact of life.

Sacral neuromodulation, or neurostimulation, with the Axonics™ device keeps symptoms of the following conditions in check for years.

  • Overactive bladder (OAB)
  • Urinary urgency
  • Incontinence
  • Urinary blockage
  • Frequency

During this procedure, a small, removable, implantable device is placed to test and stimulate the nerves of your bladder to either “quiet” it down or to “help it squeeze better.” Think of it as a “pacemaker” for your bladder!

Axonics™ Treatment SystemBenefits

This minimally invasive procedure is perfect for you if:

  • Medications no longer work, do not work, or cannot be tolerated
  • You desire to stop taking medications for your bladder
  • Incontinence
  • You desire an alternative to bladder injections
  • You experience leakage of fecal matter

The Axonics™ system is the ONLY MRI-safe and compatible neuromodulation device– It does not need to be removed or turned off prior to an MRI. Additionally, the battery system is rechargeable and small – meaning greater durability and less discomfort.

Results by The Numbers

Patients who undergo the neurostimulation procedure have reported
1. Up to 85% satisfaction rates and improvements in quality of life
2. A greater than 50% reduction in symptoms at 6 months
3. Up to 45% complete cure and continence rate at 5 years
4. Sustained symptom control up to 5 years
5. Decreased catheterization volumes and number of catheterizations (for patients with urine blockage)

The device has a greater than 90% satisfaction rate, less than 2% complication rate, and the device is typically installed only once without need for repeat procedures.
