About Your Condition
What is Overactive Bladder (OAB)?
Overactive bladder—which your doctor may refer to as “OAB”—is an umbrella term that includes the frequent and urgent need to empty your bladder. One of the most common symptoms of overactive bladder is a sudden urge to urinate, resulting in unintentional urine loss.
What Is Urinary Incontinence?
Urinary incontinence is the inability to control when the bladder releases urine.
What is Urinary Retention?
Urinary retention is the inability to empty the bladder. People with this condition are unable to urinate or they feel frequent urges but only urinate small amounts.
What is Fecal Incontinence?
Fecal incontinence, or accidental bowel leakage, is a condition where people get sudden urges to pass stool and experience leakage of stool before they make it to the restroom.
There is a solution for you
If you are suffering with symptoms of urinary incontinence, overactive bladder, urinary retention or fecal incontinence, you no longer need to suffer in silence. The good news is that there are treatment options for controlling your symptoms. Axonics Therapy is an advanced treatment option that may be right for you.
What is Axonics Therapy?
Axonics Therapy is a clinically proven solution for treating symptoms of overactive bladder (including urinary urgency incontinence), bowel (fecal) incontinence and urinary retention.1
What are the benefits of Axonics Therapy?
- Small Size: Safely delivers therapy with a miniaturized implant
- Long-Term Therapy: Designed to provide therapy for at least 15 years
- Full-Body MRI: Eligible for full-body MRI under approved conditions
- Clinically Proven: In a clinical study, Axonics Therapy provided sustained safety and symptom relief at 3 years2
How does Axonics Therapy work?
Axonics Therapy provides gentle stimulation to the nerves that control the bladder and bowel, which can restore normal control and result in symptom improvement.
The Evaluation Step: To see if Axonics Therapy is right for you, you will undergo a short period of therapy using a temporary system. The evaluation period allows you to experience the level of symptom relief the therapy may provide before you commit to long-term therapy.
Long-term Therapy: If you and your doctor determine that Axonics Therapy is right for you, you will have an outpatient procedure where the miniaturized Axonics implant is placed just beneath the skin in the upper part of your buttock.
Clinically Proven. Patient Approved.

Who is a good candidate for Axonics Therapy?
It is up to you and your healthcare provider to determine if you are a good candidate for Axonics Therapy.
Axonics Therapy is an approved treatment for patients suffering with:
- Overactive bladder (OAB) – the urgent need to urinate which may result in frequent urination and/or incontinence (leakage) episodes
- Urinary frequency – the need to urinate 8 or more times a day, which may or may not be associated with urgency
- Urinary urgency incontinence (UUI) – the urgent need to urinate or trouble holding urine before making it to the restroom
- Fecal (bowel) incontinence – involuntary loss of stool which may or may not be associated with urgency
- Nonobstructive urinary retention (UR) – the inability to completely empty the bladder which may result in trouble urinating or frequent small voids
- Axonics Therapy is indicated for patients who have failed conservative treatments, such as lifestyle changes, physical therapy, or medications.
