While Dr. Sasse can comprehensively explain the medical reasons behind sacral nerve modulation as the most effective resolution for bladder or bowel leakage, the proof is really in how the procedure impacts his patients. Here’s what his patient Julie shares about the difference sacral nerve modulation made in her life.

For many people, incontinence is embarrassing enough that they don’t seek outside assistance — a situation that’s worsened by doctors who are likewise uncomfortable discussing the condition and who don’t understand treatments option well enough to be much assistance any way. People struggling with incontinence often assume it’s just easier to manage the symptoms privately.

For Julie, that wasn’t an option. After experiencing fecal incontinence after a fistula surgery, she spoke candidly with her gynecologist. Fortunately, her doctor recommended contacting Dr. Sasse for help. After learning more about her symptoms and the cause of her incontinence, as well as assessing the muscles and nerves, he recommended sacral nerve modulation. “I was excited about it,” shares Julie. “I felt confident he was a great surgeon.”

A Dramatic Improvement

Sacral nerve modulation therapy is a minor outpatient procedure that takes about thirty minutes. It’s performed with a local anesthetic and occasionally with mild sedation. Essentially, a small device similar to a pacemaker is placed beneath the skin and very fine leads are inserted through the canal of the sacrum to properly stimulate the pelvic floor muscles. And for Julie, the difference was staggering. “It has been amazing,” she says, explaining that the procedure offered immediate relief. She recommends sacral nerve modulation to anyone struggling with incontinence. “Dr. Sasse and his staff made an uncomfortable situation so much better with their kindness.”

Julie is just one patient who has found a real solution to incontinence. If you’re struggling with the symptoms of bladder or bowel leakage, it’s important to understand that they often worsen with age. But there are treatments that offer successful outcomes.
