Have an Overactive Bladder?

Have to go to the bathroom again? Now there's help.

Bladder issues are something from which many people suffer, but no one wants to talk about it - or in some cases, even seek treatment for it.

Now there's a new therapy that can help .

Premier Urology Group is introducing percutaneous tibial nerve stimulation (PTNS) with Urgentâ PC as a new therapy for Overactive Bladder.  Studies show that 60 - 80% of patients respond to Urgent PC therapy, even if other treatments have failed.

Urgent PC therapy uses a very thin needle electrode temporarily placed in the inner ankle and connected to a stimulator.  Electrical impulses generated by the stimulator travel to the nerves that control your bladder.  While experience may differ, patients often feel a tingling in the leg and foot.  In general, the treatment is well-tolerated and will be adjusted to meet your needs.  Most patients do not experience side-effects; if side-effects occur, they are typically temporary and include mild pain and skin inflammation at or near the stimulation site.

Urgent PC therapy consists of a series of twelve 30-minute sessions, typically once a week. Patients generally can expect to see improvement by about the 6th treatment.  Occasional treatments to sustain your improvements may be needed.
