OUR THERAPY DELIVERS RELIEF

Imagine fewer trips to the bathroom. Fewer accidents. And resuming the relationships and activities you love.

COMMUNICATION IS CRITICAL

That’s why more conservative treatments may not produce the results you want — they don’t target the miscommunication between your bowel and brain. Bowel Control Therapy delivered by a sacral neuromodulation system is thought to correct the bowel-brain communication pathway to help control the symptoms of chronic FI.

BOWEL CONTROL THERAPY DELIVERED BY SACRAL NEUROMODULATION

THE RELIEF YOU’VE BEEN WAITING FOR

  • Targets the nerves that control your bowel to help it function normally again
  • Clinically proven to stop or greatly reduce bowel accidents
  • Delivers significant and lasting improvement to people with chronic FI
  • Only therapy that lets you see if it works before you and your doctor decide

Implanting a neurostimulator has risks similar to any surgical procedure, including swelling, bruising, bleeding, and infection. Talk with your doctor about ways to minimize these risks.

Success defined as ≥ 50% reduction of episodes/week. This patient group had data at both baseline and the 5 year visit. Another analysis reported 69% of people achieved success with Bowel Control Therapy. For this patient group, missing data at 5 years because of a device-related reason was counted as failure or if it was missing for non-device related reasons, the most recent data was carried forward.
