Aster Medcity, a unit of the reputed Aster DM healthcare, has demonstrated an inspiring commitment to medical advancement by successfully performing an unprecedented neuro-urological surgery in Kerala. The 34-year-old patient, Hariharan, had been suffering from an overactive bladder, a condition that conventional medication failed to alleviate.
Overactive bladder is a common condition affecting millions of people worldwide, often resulting in a significant impact on quality of life. However, it is typically well-managed with lifestyle changes and medications. For those whose lives remain disrupted despite these interventions, as in Hariharan’s case, there are a few select, innovative treatments available.
One of these innovative treatments, Sacral Neuromodulation Surgery, has proven to be a life-saver for Hariharan. The procedure involves implanting an electronic device, InterStim, to regulate the sacral nerves that control bowel and bladder functions. A collaboration of neurosurgery and urology departments led to a successful outcome for Hariharan, marking a milestone for Aster Medcity and offering hope for those grappling with overactive bladder syndrome.
