Text: Allow for normal bladder function

Audio:  “…to allow for normal bladder function. When there’s an abnormality in bladder function, one of the ways to treat that, in patients who have not responded well to good conservative medical management, would be a sacral nerve stimulation.”

Text: Sacral Nerve Stimulation  works on a number of different levels

Audio:  “It’s believed that sacral nerve stimulation works on a number different levels within the spinal cord – so it’s multi-factorial. And it’s our belief that the electrical stimulation, some how or other, re-regulates or normalizes the abnormality the patients are experiencing, such as urgency and frequency, urgency incontinence, and or non-obstructive urinary retention.”

Text: Best candidates for this treatment option

Audio:  “Best candidates for this particular treatment option would be those patients in whom you’ve performed an appropriate evaluation, identifying that they have a lower urinary tract symptoms that failed good conservative medical management, or other forms of therapy.”
