Maintenance therapy is an essential part of Medtronic bladder control therapy delivered by the NURO™ system. Each session is exactly the same as the first 12. The only difference is they are scheduled once every three to four weeks.
Talk to your doctor to figure out the schedule that works best for you.

A: Following your initial treatment of 12 weekly, 30-minute sessions, you can continue with maintenance therapy.1 When you are on maintenance therapy, treatments occur every three to four weeks rather than every week. These sessions are exactly the same as the first 12, and can be scheduled at a time that is convenient for you.

While the NURO™ device was not used in these studies, since it delivers equivalent stimulation therapy as the device used in the studies, a user can expect similar performance.
