Every patient takes a different path to relief. Medtronic offers more neuromodulation therapy choices so clinicians can find the best treatment for every patient.
Sacral neuromodulation (SNM) uses mild electrical stimulation of the sacral nerve to influence the pelvic floor muscles (for bladder control2) as well as the anal sphincter and bowel (for bowel control3).FIND OUT MORE

Restored bladder function is defined as a measurable reduction in urinary frequency and/or urinary incontinence episodes following treatment.
The most common side effects are temporary and include mild pain or skin inflammation at or near the stimulation site.
