SUPPORT PROGRAM Percutaneous Tibial Neuromodulation (PTNM)

Keep your patients on track with Support Link

When you and your patients sign up for Support Link™, we’ll send patients weekly emails and call them at specific intervals during their 12-week journey.

There is no additional charge to participate in this patient support program. All that is required is for you to register your practice and capture consent from each patient receiving PTNM.

Support Link helps:

  • Encourage patients to complete the 12-week therapy
  • Answer high-level, non-clinical questions about PTNM and sacral neuromodulation (SNM)
  • Patients understand the OAB advanced therapy pathway

Finishing all 12 sessions gives patients the best opportunity to see the results they want,1 but many patients do not finish the therapy. The Support Link program connects with patients throughout their PTNM journey, encouraging them to stick with the therapy and complete the first 12 weeks and beyond.


How to participate in Support Link

In order for your patients to be eligible to participate in the Support Link program, the first step is to enroll your clinic.

Each patient must opt-in to the Support Link program. Your role is to:

  • Identify appropriate candidates for PTNM
  • Capture patient consent and fax the signed form or scan and send via email
  • Encourage your patient to consent to Support Link during their first PTNM session by visiting www.medtronic.com/signup
