Neuromodulation for Overactive Bladder

Harley Street, London

Neuromodulation is a treatment approach for Overactive Bladder (OAB) that involves stimulating nerves to help regulate bladder function. This therapy aims to improve bladder control and reduce symptoms like urgency, frequency, and urinary incontinence.

Types of Neuromodulation:

  • Sacral Neuromodulation: Involves the placement of a small device near the sacral nerves in the lower back to help regulate bladder function.
  • Percutaneous Tibial Nerve Stimulation (PTNS): Involves stimulating the tibial nerve in the ankle through a thin needle to modulate bladder activity.

Neuromodulation can help improve bladder control, reduce urgency, and decrease episodes of urinary incontinence. Depending on the type of neuromodulation, the procedure can be non-invasive (like PTNS) or minimally invasive (like sacral neuromodulation), with minimal discomfort. Neuromodulation can provide long-term relief from OAB symptoms, helping you regain control over your bladder function. It offers an alternative to medication for patients who have not responded well to medications or prefer non-pharmacological treatments.

Mr Raison will work with you to develop a personalised treatment plan that may include a series of neuromodulation sessions. Regular follow-up appointments will be necessary to monitor your response to neuromodulation and make any necessary adjustments to optimise treatment outcomes.

Mr Raison is available for private urology consultations, treatments, and surgical procedures at The London Clinic, Harley Street.
