"I have found the Detrusan electro stimulation treatment most successful in patients with symptoms of urinary frequency, urgency, and urge incontinence. It has had somewhat dramatic results for me in patients with a spinal neuropathy component to their bladder control. Some patients with pelvic area pain related to neuropathy have also been improved. Patients with mild stress urinary incontinence and poor ability to contract the pelvic floor muscles have improved with intravaginal Detrusan electro stimulation treatments as well."
"I believe that there are many people suffering from what they have been told are incurable cases of incontinence that would benefit from this treatment."
