We wrote recently about Dr. Sasse’s new monthly writing contribution to a website called Sixty and Me about incontinence. In his second article for the website, he took aim at an important topic – why most doctors don’t know about the best treatment for incontinence.

From the Article

“If you have tried to discuss any form of incontinence with your doctors and received mostly blank stares in return, you are not alone.

Over the past 20 years, I have come to realize that the treatment of bowel and bladder control problems represents a perfect storm when it comes to the failure of the medical world to deliver the latest and most effective treatment.”

From the glamour aspect to the nuances of specialist training and the breakneck speed of technology to the power of marketing, that perfect storm unfortunately means the people who need to know about sacral neuromodulation the most often have no idea of its existence. And when they do happen to hear about it, there’s one final hurdle – neuromodulation can be a tricky technology. There are only a small number of specialists with the skills and experience to execute it properly.

Read the full article over at Sixty and Me, and please don’t hesitate to contact the team here at Sasse Surgical if you or someone you love is struggling with incontinence. It can be effectively resolved, and it isn’t something you need to manage in secret any longer.
