Stop Bladder Control Problems

About 13 million people in the US, mostly women are affected with bladder control problems which affect social activities and even vacations and relationships. Some people are losing hope as if there's not much they can do about it, because it disrupts daily life activities.

According to Dr. James Wright, a urologist of Johns Hopkins, a new treatment called sacral nerve stimulation can change a person's life.

Sacral nerve stimulation is successful to patients who experience urinary frequency or urinary retention which can then only after they've tried and failed with bladder retraining and medication. This device will then be permanently implanted near the lower back after a testing period.

This is quite a good news and a brighter hope for patients who have this problem.
