Neuromodulation: Treatment for Overactive Bladder & Fecal Incontinence
Are you tired of dealing with frequent trips to the bathroom or sudden loss of control? If you are suffering from overactive bladder with urge incontinence or fecal incontinence, undergoing neuromodulation may be the solution you need. At Northwest Ohio Center for Urogynecology Women’s Health in Perrysburg, Ohio, we proudly provide the latest, state-of-the-art treatments for overactive bladder and fecal incontinence. These treatments allow you to regain control over your life while taking care of the source of your health concerns.
Treating your overactive bladder does not mean that you require surgery. Percutaneous (or Posterior) tibial nerve stimulation (PTNS) is one office based form of neuromodulation used to treat overactive bladder (OAB). This new technology can effectively reduce or eliminate urinary urgency, urinary frequency, and urge incontinence (bladder leaks).
A second minimally invasive form of neuromodulation offered for not only OAB, but also for fecal urgency and incontinence, is a staged outpatient procedure that 1st tests for 2 weeks of improvement, and 2nd implants a small permanent neurostimulator.
