Overactive bladder treatment

Scripps Clinic offers Percutaneous tibial nerve stimulation (PTNS), an office-based treatment that is clinically proven to improve bladder control, even in people who have not found success with other therapies such as medications or pelvic muscle exercises.

PTNS is a low-risk procedure that is covered by many insurance companies. The treatments take place once a week for approximately 12 weeks, for 30 minutes each session. After the first 12 treatments, sessions are scheduled only as needed.
