This third line treatment option for women who have tried and failed lifestyle modifications and medical management, provides relief for many women who urge urinary incontinence, urinary retetention and fecal incontinence. During this two step procedure, women undergo a trial period for approximately a week during which time we are able to see if the therapy will adequately improve bladder or bowel symptoms.

This therapy has been available in the United States since 1996 and continues to safely and effectively provide many women relief from their bladder or bowel symptoms.
