This textbook describes sacral nerve stimulation and the role it plays in restoring lower urinary tract function. The reader will become familiar with the specific anatomy, the principles of neurostimulation and neuromodulation and patient selection. The authors also share the results obtained during the last two decades using this "high-tech" surgical procedure. Though not first-line therapy, sacral nerve stimulation is indicated for those patients who have failed to see success from conservative treatment in the problems of voiding and storage. New Perspectives in Sacral Nerve Stimulation is the first comprehensive overview of this exciting, intriguing field.
