How does Axonics Therapy work?

Axonics Therapy gently stimulates the nerves responsible for bladder and bowel control, providing symptom relief. Here’s what to expect during the process:

Evaluation Phase: Before committing to long-term therapy, you’ll undergo a brief trial using a temporary system. This trial period allows you to gauge the potential symptom relief offered by Axonics Therapy.

Long-term Treatment: If you and your doctor decide that Axonics Therapy is suitable for you, you’ll undergo an outpatient procedure. During this procedure, the miniaturized Axonics implant will be placed just beneath the skin in the upper part of your buttock.

Who is a good candidate for Axonics Therapy?

It is up to you and your healthcare provider to determine if you are a good candidate for Axonics Therapy.

Axonics Therapy is an approved treatment for patients suffering with:

  • Overactive bladder (OAB) – the urgent need to urinate which may result in frequent urination and/or incontinence (leakage) episodes
  • Urinary frequency – the need to urinate 8 or more times a day, which may or may not be associated with urgency
  • Urinary urgency incontinence (UUI) – the urgent need to urinate or trouble holding urine before making it to the restroom
  • Nonobstructive urinary retention (UR) – the inability to completely empty the bladder which may result in trouble urinating or frequent small voids
  • Fecal (bowel) incontinence – involuntary loss of stool which may or may not be associated with urgency
  • Axonics Therapy is indicated for patients who have failed conservative treatments, such as lifestyle changes, physical therapy, or medications.
