This is performed for the treatment of overactive bladder. You will be lying on your stomach and local anesthesia is injected into the skin on the lower back. A small needle is used to identify the nerve that goes to the bladder on each side. A small wire is then placed onto the nerve on each side. These wires remain external and are connected to a remote control box for a trial period of anywhere from 3-7 days. You will be taking antibiotics during the trial period. It takes approximately 20 minutes but expect to be at the appointment for one hour. You may drive yourself to and from the procedure and there is no preparation.
