Posted on: 30th Oct, 2020

It’s an unfortunate fact that the people who need modern technology like sacral neuromodulation to treat the all-too-common condition of incontinence simply don’t know about it. It’s one of the reasons we’re sharing content about incontinence here on our blog, on our Facebook page, and even on Instagram. To continue raising awareness, Dr. Sasse is also contributing a monthly article about incontinence to Sixty and Me, a wonderful online community of more than 500,000 women.

From the Article

In his debut piece, Dr. Sasse wrote about the impact of incontinence:

“In my 22 years of practice, I’ve worked with countless wonderful, vibrant, healthy women in their 60s, 70s, 80s, and 90s who find themselves curtailing their lives to accommodate a problem they find too embarrassing and frustrating to even discuss.

Hikes, shopping trips, workouts, holidays, social events, walks with the grandchildren – all of these activities become more and more challenging. So these amazing, vivacious, otherwise mentally and physically vigorous women find themselves withdrawing more and more, all to accommodate leakage issues that are only getting worse.”

He also covered common causes of incontinence, why many doctors aren’t aware of modern technology that addresses the condition, and what can be done to truly resolve it. It’s an informative article, and we hope you’ll enjoy the read.
