Are your bladder and bowel accidents disrupting your life? If you are experiencing the following symptoms, you may be suffering with urinary or fecal incontinence, overactive bladder, or urinary retention:
Bladder control problems are treatable and manageable conditions that do not have to be a normal part of aging or a fact of life.
What is Overactive Bladder (OAB)? Overactive bladder—which your doctor may refer to as “OAB”—is an umbrella term that includes the frequent and urgent need to empty your bladder. One of the most common symptoms of overactive bladder is a sudden urge to urinate, resulting in unintentional urine loss.
What Is Urinary Incontinence? Urinary incontinence is the loss of bladder control, or leaking urine.
What is Urinary Retention? Urinary retention is the inability to empty the bladder. People with this condition are unable to urinate or they feel frequent urges but only urinate small amounts.
There is a solution for you. It could be as simple as making dietary changes or it may require a more advanced, high-tech option like Axonics Therapy.

On the Leading Edge of Bladder Treatment
One of the newest and most effective treatments for overactive bladder and incontinence issues is Axonics Therapy. This treatment provides gentle stimulation to the nerves that control the bladder and bowel, which can restore normal control and result in symptom improvement. A similar technology from Medtronic has been on the market for years, but Axonics has achieved a vast improvement over older systems.
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.
Clinically Proven. Patient Approved.
Backed by clinical studies, Axonics Therapy is shown to regain bladder control and deliver clinically meaningful improvement in quality of life.
