Percutaneous Tibial Neuromodulation (PTNM)

PTNM Therapy with the NURO System

Percutaneous Tibial Neuromodulation (PTNM) delivered by the NURO™ System is a safe and effective treatment for overactive bladder (OAB). NURO administers adjustable electrical pulses through a needle to stimulate the afferent fibers of the tibial nerve. These pulses are thought to relieve OAB symptoms by modulating communication between the bladder and central nervous system (CNS).
