Paris, TN – Kentucky Lake Urologic Associates urologists Dr. Joe Mobley, III, and Dr. John Beddies recently announced that they are utilizing a new treatment for patients with overactive bladder, bowel incontinence and urinary retention.
Axonics Therapy is a method for treating symptoms of overactive bladder (including urinary urgency incontinence), bowel (fecal) incontinence and urinary retention. Backed by clinical studies, Axonics Therapy is clinically proven to regain bladder and bowel control and deliver clinically meaningful improvement in quality of life.
Axonics Therapy provides gentle stimulation to the nerves that control the bladder and bowel, which can restore normal control and result in symptom improvement. Axonics Therapy is indicated for patients who have failed conservative treatments, such as lifestyle changes, physical therapy, or medications.
Patients will first undergo an evaluation to see if Axonics Therapy is right for them. The patients will undergo a short period of therapy using a temporary system. The evaluation period allows the patients to experience the level of symptom relief the therapy may provide before committing to long-term therapy.
If the patient and urologist determine that Axonics Therapy is right for the patient, he or she will have an outpatient procedure where the miniaturized Axonics implant is placed just beneath the skin in the upper part of your buttock.
