eCoin Treatment

As a low-risk treatment, eCoin can offer symptom relief for many patients with overactive bladder and urge incontinence. For people who tried medications but didn’t get relief or had bothersome side effects, eCoin may be a good alternative. A urologist places the eCoin implant—about the size of a nickel—right under the skin at the ankle. Here, the device can stimulate the tibial nerve, which helps with bladder control. Patients stay awake during the procedure, receive local anesthesia to numb the ankle area, and go home the same day with minimal pain.
