OAB CARE PATHWAY Percutaneous Tibial Neuromodulation (PTNM)

Treatment Pathway for Overactive Bladder (OAB)

Below is an example of a typical bladder control treatment pathway for a patient who is seeking treatment for symptoms of urge-incontinence and/or urgency-frequency.1

Share this pathway with your OAB patients, regardless of where they are on the pathway, to help them understand that there is a wide range of treatment options. Seeing that there is a care pathway motivates patients to try another option when one fails or is unsatisfactory.
