In a significant medical advancement, Aster Medcity, part of Aster DM healthcare, has successfully conducted a groundbreaking surgery involving a novel collaboration of the neurosurgery and urology departments. This milestone was achieved in the treatment of a 34-year-old patient, Hariharan, who was struggling with an overactive bladder, a condition affecting both his physical and mental health.
Overactive bladder syndrome, while common and treatable in most cases, can become a severe issue in instances where conventional treatments fail. Such cases call for advanced medical solutions, which Aster Medcity has proven to be more than capable of providing.
By implementing Sacral Neuromodulation Surgery, a novel treatment method, the team at Aster Medcity provided Hariharan with the relief he needed. The surgery involved implanting the InterStim device, much like a pacemaker, which aids in controlling the sacral nerves responsible for bowel and bladder functions
