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.ⁱ
What are the benefits of Axonics Therapy?
Small Size: Safely delivers therapy with a miniaturized implant
Long-Term Therapy: Designed to provide long-term symptom relief
Full-Body MRI: Eligible for full-body MRI under approved conditions
Clinically Proven: In a clinical study, Axonics Therapy provided sustained safety and symptom relief at 3 years²
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.
