The APC now offers Percutaneous Tibial Nerve Stimulation to patients with overactive bladder symptoms.
There are no out of pocket costs to patients for this procedure.
Percutaneous Tibial Nerve Stimulation has proven extremely effective in reducing the symptoms of overactive bladder. It has been safely administered to patients since 2003. It is effective in both men and women and involves patients sitting comfortable as a slim accupuncture needle is placed near the ankle. A device that delivers mild electronic impulses is attached to the needle which delivers the impulses to the nerves that control the bladder. Patients usually feel a very mild sensation in the leg during treatment. The treatments requires 12 weekly sessions. To enquire about this treatment please ring APC on (03) 8373 7600
