Sacral Nerve Stimulation SNS

Sacral nerve stimulation permits electrical stimulation of the sacral nerves via an implantable neurostimulator device.

It is meant to treat following conditions:

  • Refractory urgency, urge incontinence
  • Voiding difficulty
  • Pelvic pain
  • Faecal incontinence
  • Constipation
  • Anal pain
  • faecal incontinence
  • Interstitial cystitis
  • Spinal injury
  • Neurodegenerative disease
  • Sexual dysfunction

Stimulation of the sacral nerve causes contraction of external sphincter and pelvic floor muscle which causes the inhibition of bladder contractions which may be involuntarily releasing urine. Researchers currently believe that the sacral neuromodulation blocks the c-afferent fibers, which are an important  part of the afferent limb of a reflex pathway believed to be responsible for incontinence.

Sacral nerve stimulation is a promising and durable treatment for  refractory conditions. All patients have reported major benefit for above mentioned conditions.

It is a most latest and advanced method of treatment which is advised when all medicines have failed to provide relief  in the world and is now available in Lahore, Pakistan.
