Erlanger Women’s Health and Erlanger Urology have been designated Axonics Centers of Excellence. The designation recognizes the Erlanger Women’s Health and Urology teams, specifically Drs. Carson Kaeser and Henry Okafor for their expertise with implantable nerve stimulation devices and sincere commitment to changing the lives of patients suffering from bladder and bowel dysfunction. They are the only physicians in the region to hold this honor.
According to studies, millions of Americans suffer from overactive bladder and fecal incontinence. The experts at Erlanger are pleased to treat patients in the Chattanooga area with chronic and debilitating symptoms related to bladder and bowel dysfunction. Implantable devices gently stimulate the sacral nerve (sacral neuromodulation), restoring normal communication between the brain and the bladder. This therapy can provide rapid and long-lasting relief of symptoms associated with bladder and bowel dysfunction, improving quality of life for patients.
"Erlanger is proud to be recognized as a Center of Excellence. This designation is a testament to the dedication of our entire team, and in particular to Dr. Kaeser and Dr. Okafor," said Traci Jennings, vice president of Operations for Erlanger Medical Group.
The Axonics Center of Excellence program recognizes highly trained and experienced physicians (typically urologists, urogynecologists, and colorectal surgeons) and clinical practices that are committed to patient education and providing exemplary care to achieve optimal clinical outcomes and patient satisfaction.
