About the Urgent PC Neuromodulation System

The Urgent PC neuromodulation system is a proprietary, minimally invasive nerve stimulation device designed for office-based treatment of urge incontinence, urinary urgency and urinary frequency. Application of neuromodulation therapy targets specific nerve tissue and disrupts the signals that lead to these urinary symptoms. Uroplasty sells the Urgent PC system in the United States, Canada and countries recognizing the CE mark. Outside of the United States, the Urgent PC is also indicated for the treatment of fecal incontinence.
