Aster Medcity, Kochi attains milestone with first-ever Sacral Nerve Neuromodulation Surgery in Kerala.
In a first-of-its-kind surgery in Kerala, Aster Medcity, a leading integrated healthcare organization under Aster DM healthcare, has pushed the frontiers of medicine by using Sacral Neuromodulation Surgery to treat overactive bladder syndrome. The overactive bladder, characterized by the frequent urge to urinate, often interrupts the daily life of those affected, leading to both physical and psychological stress.
Hariharan, a 34-year-old man, found his life severely affected by this condition, prompting him to seek help from Aster Medcity. While most cases of overactive bladder can be managed with lifestyle modifications and pharmacotherapy, Hariharan’s case called for more advanced treatment options. This led to the unprecedented collaboration between the neurosurgery and urology departments at Aster Medcity.
InterStim Implantation Surgery was identified as the best treatment option. InterStim, a device similar to a pacemaker, was surgically implanted to regulate the sacral nerves responsible for bowel and bladder functions. As a testament to the advanced healthcare solutions provided by Aster Medcity, the procedure’s success signals a new era in overactive bladder syndrome treatment.
