Overactive bladder (OAB) is no joke. Did you know that an estimated one in six adults has it? If you’re one of them, constantly running to the bathroom or leaking, we’re here to tell you that we can help! Aguirre Specialty Care offers a life-changing therapy called sacral neuromodulation or sacral nerve stimulation. This minimally invasive therapy is giving new freedom to patients who have spent years suffering from OAB!
Here are just two recent reviews from patients from Aguirre Specialty Care’s Google My Business page:
I am a 25 year old woman in menopause, that suffered from incontinence, chronic pyelonephritis, pelvic pain, discomfort/lack of sensation during intercourse.. you name it.. I had it. (Bizarre, right?) Throughout the course of 6 months and a few tests, Dr. Aguirre had a diagnosis and 2 different courses of treatment. He suggested I try an implant called 'Axonics' which is a sacral nerve neurotransmitter (SNM). Normally, this is for men/women 65+ who suffer from incontinence, increased urinary frequency, pain etc. Due to my history of surgeries and failed attempts at a solution- I was hesitant.. more like terrified, to go through yet another procedure. Dr. Aguirre, his nursing staff specifically Jackie and Jodi, guided me and supported me in the process and really went above and beyond- showing nothing but excellent patient care, compassion and grace. This implant, changed my life..and it wasn't just a temporary fix.. this tiny little device will last for upwards of 10-15 years of relief. It was worth every appointment. Every exam and test. I am now close to being symptom free (as far as my urinary and endocrine issues go).. I never thought that I would come close to feeling this free again.. I only need to be seen as needed, should something arise. I can tell you, if it weren't for the outstanding staff I never would have gone through with it, I would be miserable and I definitely wouldn't be writing this review.
[ Dr. Aguirre and team, thank you from the bottom of my heart for not giving up on me, for your candor and changing my life. You are all the definition of what it means to be a caregiver. Again, thank you. ] — MacKenzie C.
I have been a patient of Dr. Aguirre and recently consulted him regarding some issues with bladder incontinence. You know how it goes; you get a bit older — you begin to have a leak when you cough..or laugh..and then it is more of a problem — and soon you are wearing a pad.
I had the Interstim device implanted after a trial run in November. Since then, I no longer have misses — I rarely leak. It has given me a new freedom. Dr. Aguirre's main concern is resolving my issues. He is so good. I would like to give kudos to Dr. Aguirre and his staff. They are so helpful, respectful and professional. I give them 5 stars. — Rita U.
We were very eager to share these reviews because we want you to know that real help and significant improvements are possible with the right care and treatment! Too many people are forced to accept chronic and often debilitating conditions such as OAB because their doctors don’t have the knowledge or resources to help them. This is why Dr. Oscar A. Aguirre has devoted his entire career to providing the highest level of urogynecologic care — because he is passionate about filling this void in the industry. Simply put, you deserve to find relief from OAB and other debilitating pelvic conditions, and help is finally at hand at Aguirre Specialty Care!
Do you suspect you may have OAB? Here’s a look at some of its main symptoms:
- Frequent leaks throughout day
- Frequent, uncontrollable urges to go
- Feeling like your bladder is never empty
At Aguirre Specialty Care, we treat OAB with sacral neuromodulation or sacral nerve stimulation. We offer two different, although similar, FDA-approved advanced bladder control therapies: InterStim™ Therapy and Axonics® Therapy. These are both implantable devices that target the nerves controlling your bladder, helping it to function normally again. If drugs, medications or lifestyle modifications aren’t working for you, sacral neuromodulation could be a highly effective option for you. Clinical studies indicate that sacral neuromodulation provides long-term relief for overactive bladder and is clinically superior to oral medication! Plus, this implantable device does NOT require self-catheterization or repeated treatment visits, further enhancing your quality and ease in life.
Imagine being able to go through life with fewer trips to the bathroom, fewer accidents and more confidence! To learn more about sacral nerve stimulation, please call 303-322-0500 or complete our consultation request form today.
