What is Urgent PC?
Urgent PC is a non-drug, non-surgical treatment for overactive bladder.
Since 2003, healthcare professionals have used the Urgent PC Neuromodulation System to treat overactive bladder and associated symptoms of urinary urgency, urinary frequency and urge incontinence. Talk to your clinician to learn more about these symptoms.
The Urgent PC Neuromodulation System is a combination of a hand-held stimulator, thin needle electrode and a lead set. The stimulator generates electrical impulses that are delivered to the patient through the lead set.
Frequently Asked Questions
Because Urgent PC gently modifies the signals to achieve bladder control, it usually takes 5-7 weeks for symptoms to change. However, patients respond at different rates. In a review of about 100 patients who had success with Urgent PC, symptoms improved anywhere between 2-12 weeks. For about 20% of these patients, the symptoms of urgency and/or urge incontinence didn't improve until after 8 weeks.
There is no way to anticipate who will respond earlier, later or not at all. That's why it is important to receive the 12 recommended treatments before you and your physician evaluate whether this therapy is an appropriate and effective choice for you.
