What is Axonics® Therapy?

Axonics® Therapy is a clinically proven solution for treating symptoms of overactive bladder (including urinary urgency incontinence), bowel (fecal) incontinence and urinary retention.

  • Overactive Bladder

  • Bowel Incontinence

  • Urinary Retention

How does Axonics therapy work?

Axonics therapy provides gentle stimulation to the nerves that control the bladder and bowel, which can restore normal control and result in symptom improvement.

The Evaluation Step: To see if Axonics therapy is right for you, you will undergo a short period of therapy using a temporary system. The evaluation period allows you to experience the level of symptom relief the therapy may provide before you commit to long-term therapy.

Long-term Therapy: If you and your doctor determine that Axonics therapy is right for you, you will have an outpatient procedure where the miniaturized Axonics implant is placed just beneath the skin in the upper part of your buttock.
