What is overactive bladder treatment?
Having an overactive bladder can be frustrating to deal with. It can include the frequent or urgent need to empty your bladder multiple times during the day or night. When you schedule an appointment with our team at Phase II Center for Women's Health, we take an integrative approach to your treatment. We will help you determine your baseline bladder function, order any necessary diagnostic tests, and discuss the various treatment options that are available to you. Options may include medication, physical therapy, botox or sacral nerve stimulation (SNS). SNS works through a permanent implant to restore normal communication between the bladder and the brain. This improved communication helps to alleviate your symptoms so that you can get back to enjoying your daily activities without worry. Schedule an appointment at our Millcreek, UT office to learn more.

Who is a good candidate for sacral nerve stimulation therapy?
You are considered a good candidate for sacral nerve stimulation therapy if you have experienced an overactive bladder, urinary incontinence, urinary urgency and/or frequency, or incontinence of stool. It is also effective for nonobstructive urinary retention (UR), which is the inability to totally empty the bladder. You must have tried at least two other therapies and not had improvement before sacral nerve stimulation is an option.
Sacral nerve stimulation is a small device that is placed just beneath the skin. It is MRI compatible and can provide long-term therapy for up to 20 years. Let this therapy help you combat your overactive bladder symptoms. Contact Phase II Center for Women's Health in Millcreek, UT to schedule a consultation and learn more about this effective treatment.
Phase II Center for Women's Health Reviews
Dr Angela Jones really heard me and offered great advice.
I had a fantastic experience at this office. The staff are friendly and professional. Dr. Jones is thorough, approachable and knowledgeable. I felt seen and heard.
I saw Julie Jones after losing my former doctor in the pandemic. Julie is great! Great sense of humor and very kind, but extremely thorough and helpful. She reviewed my labs in detail with me - I've never had a doctor do that. She is treating my perimenopause with compassion and care. Love her! Office staff are all great as well, very kind and helpful.
Dr Graul is incredible. She listened to all my concerns and needs and made it happen. I had been looking for a doctor for almost 10 years to do a hysterectomy and she is the first to say yes. It was the best decision. Recovery was a breeze. I didn’t take any major pain killers other than ibuprofen after day 3 and was back to work full time after 1 week. Highly recommend Dr Graul!
Angela is very knowledgeable professional and friendly. I’m so glad I found her!

What Should I Expect After Sacral Nerve Stimulation For Overactive Bladder is Installed?
After the sacral nerve stimulation implant is installed, you should be able to return home the same day or the following day. Discomfort following the procedure is rare, and the implant is not visible through the skin. However, you may notice some unfamiliar tingling or pulling sensations at times in the days after installation. This is to be expected and is a sign that your body is acclimating to the electrical impulses from the device. Patients are typically given a remote control to adjust the impulses to their liking, and your practitioner can also adjust the device upon follow-up visits to Phase II Center for Women’s Health.
