Patient Review: A Life-Changing Procedure for Incontinence

Posted on: 15th Jan, 2021

At 63 years old, Dr. Sasse’s patient Mary experienced a life-changing procedure for incontinence. After years of failed remedies, she was understandably skeptical when her physician recommended a visit to Dr. Sasse. It would prove to be the beginning of a real resolution that has changed everything.

Finding an Answer

Mary’s bladder dictated her life. “I was constantly going to the bathroom,” she says. She wore a heavy pad that she changed several times a day due to leaking. It was tiresome and embarrassing, and it complicated everything. In her search for a solution, she tried exercises designed to strengthen the pelvic floor, as well as prescription medications. Nothing worked. So when her doctor referred her to Dr. Sasse, she wasn’t overly optimistic.

“When I first heard of SNM, I was skeptical,” she says. “How could an implant help me from leaking? Believe me – it does!” Mary’s first test was a holiday. “When I went on vacation, my son really noticed the difference. Usually, I would go to the bathroom three or four times an hour. On vacation, it was more like once every three or four hours.”

The difference was dramatic – far and away from anything Mary had tried before. “My life has improved so much in the last four and a half weeks since the implant,” she says. “I would highly recommend Dr. Sasse – he is straightforward and let you know what to expect.”

She has advice for anyone who’s experiencing incontinence the way she once did. “What have you got to lose?” she asks. “I no longer leak as much, no more heavy pads, bathrooms aren’t the first thing I look for in a new environment.”
