1. What can help when your bladder doesn't work properly?

Overactive Bladder (OAB) and urge incontinence (UI) are treatable conditions. Pads, towels and other conservative measures are not always enough when you have wee or weeing issues, and they may not address the root causes of the problem. Other options are available and recommended where you live.

2. What can help when your bowels don't work properly?

Faecal incontinence (FI) and bowel dysfunction are treatable conditions. Pads, towels and other conservative measures are not always enough when you have poo or pooing issues, and they may not address the root causes of the problem. Other options are available and recommended where you live.

3. What is Sacral Neuromodulation (SNM)?

Sacral Neuromodulation (SNM) or Sacral Nerve Stimulation (SNS) is a therapy option for the treatment of bladder and bowel incontinence when conservative measures have been less successful. A long-standing, proven and minimally invasive surgical option, SNM is recommended by specialist Urology and Colorectal clinical teams who focus on functional solutions.
