Sacral Neuromodulation for bladder controlLiving with urge urinary incontinence (UUI) can be a daily challenge, impacting your comfort and confidence. But there’s hope. Sacral neuromodulation, a cutting-edge treatment, offers a way to regain control over your bladder and significantly improve your quality of life. Let’s explore how this remarkable procedure is restoring bladder control for those with UUI.

Understanding Urge Urinary Incontinence (UUI)

UUI, also known as overactive bladder (OAB), is characterized by sudden, intense urges to urinate, often leading to involuntary leakage. It can disrupt your daily routine, social activities, and overall well-being. UUI can result from various factors, including bladder muscle overactivity and neurological conditions.

What Is Sacral Neuromodulation?

Sacral neuromodulation is a minimally invasive procedure that involves the implantation of a small device, similar to a pacemaker, near the sacral nerves in the lower back. These sacral nerves play a vital role in controlling bladder function. The device delivers mild electrical impulses to modulate the nerve signals, helping to regulate bladder activity.

The Sacral Neuromodulation Procedure

The sacral neuromodulation procedure typically involves the following steps:

  1. Trial Period: Before permanent implantation, a trial period is conducted to determine if sacral neuromodulation is effective for the patient. During this phase, a temporary lead is placed through the sacral foramina and connected to an external device.
  2. Permanent Implantation: If the trial period proves successful, a permanent implantation is performed. A small device is implanted under the skin, usually in the upper buttock area, and connected to the lead.
  3. Programming: The device is programmed to deliver electrical impulses that help regulate bladder activity. The patient can adjust settings as needed to achieve optimal results.
