A New Solution for Overactive Bladder, Bowel Incontinence, and Urinary Retention

Axonics Therapy is a clinically approved procedure for patients affected by several conditions affecting the bladder and bowels, including:

  • Overactive Bladder (OAB): urgent and sudden need to urinate, often leading to frequent urination or incontinence episodes.
  • Urinary Urgency Incontinence (UUI): strong and sudden urges to urinate, sometimes leading to unintentional urine leakage before reaching the restroom.
  • Urinary Frequency: having to urinate eight times per day or more, with or without urgency.
  • Fecal (bowel) Incontinence: involuntary release of stool, potentially with urgency.
  • Nonobstructive Urinary Retention (UR): inability to fully empty one’s bladder, often resulting in difficulty urinating.

Axonics Therapy can be an excellent treatment option for those who haven’t found relief from more conservative relief efforts, such as medications, lifestyle changes, or physical therapy. If you or a loved one is experiencing any of these symptoms, consult with the experts at El Camino Urology Group to determine your most suitable treatment.

Axonics Therapy Benefits

Axonics Therapy is an innovative treatment that can significantly help individuals struggling with bladder and bowel issues improve their quality of life and improve their symptoms. These symptoms often stem from disrupted communication between the brain and the bladder and bowel, resulting in discomfort and inconvenience. By focusing on restoring the nervous system's normal communication lines, Axonics Therapy can result in a marked improvement in conditions.

Our Mountain View Axonics Therapy patients enjoy benefits including:

  • Improved bladder control and reduced urgency and frequency of urination
  • Enhanced bowel function and reduced bowel incontinence
  • Reduced discomfort in the bladder and bowels
  • Minimally-invasive surgical procedure
  • Minimal discomfort in the treatment area

Say goodbye to constant disruptions and regain control over your daily activities with this clinically proven, non-surgical approach to symptom relief.

Axonics Therapy Candidates

Axonics Therapy is an excellent treatment option for individuals who have found little relief through conservative treatments for conditions such as overactive bladder, urinary or bowel urge incontinence, urgency-frequency, non-obstructive urinary retention, and chronic fecal incontinence.

Axonics Therapy may not be suitable for everyone. Pregnant individuals, those under the age of 16, those with a history of cancer, and individuals with neurological issues due to chronic conditions like diabetes or multiple sclerosis may not be ideal candidates.

Consultation and Preparation

Your Axonics Therapy treatment journey begins with a consultation, where you can ask any questions and go over your medical history. Dr. Karpman will answer any questions you may have and thoroughly discuss your medical history to determine if you are a candidate for the procedure.

The next step involves a test application of the device used in Axonics Therapy. Using an external device worn underneath your clothes, you can experience the relief the therapy provides on a trial basis before committing to the treatment.

How does Axonics Therapy work?

To begin Axonics Therapy, Dr. Karpman will implant the Axonics device in a quick procedure that is performed using minimally invasive techniques, usually only requiring local anesthesia. The device is inserted in the lower back, just above the buttocks, and the entire procedure typically takes approximately 20-30 minutes to complete.

Results, Recovery, and Aftercare

Patients can typically resume their normal activities within three weeks, with the potential for light activities within a few days post-procedure. Following implantation, patients may experience a mild sensation of pulling or tingling, which should not be painful. If discomfort arises, contact your doctor.

Over time, most patients report that they no longer notice the electrical impulses, enabling them to regain confidence and engage in activities that may have been challenging due to bladder or bowel incontinence. Axonics Therapy is capable of providing long-term relief with a device that is meant to last for a minimum of 15 years (at which time the device is usually removed and a new one inserted).
