OAB is very common. It affects 1 in 6 men and women in the US. Many people think that as you age it’s normal to get a bladder control problem. Maybe your mother, father or grandparents had it. But the fact is, your bladder control problem may be a medical condition called overactive bladder (OAB).

Our practice has been designated as a center of excellence with the most experience in the tri-state (NY, NJ, CT) area in performing tibial nerve stimulation (neuromodulation) for patients with overactive bladder, urinary urgency, or urinary frequency. Dr. Boczko and Dr. Blair are pioneers in this cutting-edge technology. Tibial nerve stimulation is a cutting edge, simple, effective, office-based treatment for those with an overactive bladder.
Outpatient neuromodulation with the Urgent PC Neuromodulation System uses the tibial nerve to target the nerves in the spinal cord that control pelvic floor function, thereby affecting a patient’s symptoms.
Neuromodulation using Urgent PC:
