Incontinence surgery. Artwork of the sacral region of a woman's pelvis showing a schematic diagram for bladder and sacral surgery to treat incontinence. As well as surgery, treatment can involve implants in the sacral region such as a sacral nerve stimulator. SNS delivers an electrical impulse to stimulate the sacral nerve as a treatment for those with bladder control problems. The bladder stores urine produced by the kidneys (shown at left). The bottom five vertebrae (the lumbar vertebrae) are also labelled (I-V).
