Frequently Asked Questions

Axonics Therapy, also referred to as Sacral Neuromodulation, is an advanced bladder and bowel control treatment that can help reduce the symptoms of overactive bladder, bowel incontinence, and urinary retention. The therapy works by helping restore normal communication between your brain and your bladder and/or bowel.

Axonics Sacral Neuromodulation Therapy provides gentle stimulation to the nerves that control the bladder and bowel. The stimulation can help restore normal communication between the brain and the bladder and/or bowel, which can result in an improvement of your overactive bladder, bowel incontinence, and urinary retention symptoms.

Axonics Therapy is not a cure, but it is a long-term therapy that may provide significant relief of your symptoms.
