Today, millions of Americans suffer from overactive bladder and fecal incontinence. Axonics Therapy gently stimulates the sacral nerve (sacral neuromodulation), restoring normal communication between the brain and the bladder. Axonics Therapy has been clinically proven to provide rapid and long-lasting relief of symptoms associated with bladder and bowel dysfunction. In a clinical study, 129 patients with urgency incontinence were treated with Axonics Therapy. After one year, 93% of patients were satisfied with their therapy and 89% experienced a 50% or greater reduction in urinary urgency incontinence (UUI) symptoms.
Patients in the San Diego region with chronic and debilitating symptoms related to bladder and bowel dysfunction may seek treatment from experts like Dr. Stephen Unterberg by calling (858) 485-0554 to schedule an appointment at the Rancho Bernardo or Hillcrest clinics.
