Solesta Treatment for Fecal Incontinence

Solesta is a sterile, bulking agent contained in a disposable 1 mL assembled glass syringe that is injected in the deep submucosal layer in the anal canal about 5 mm above the dentate line. A total of 4 injections of 1 mL of Solesta is administered at the time of your appointment. This will be complete with only one session in our office. You will need to be monitored for 1 hour after the injection is completed so the physician can examine you and confirm that you are ok to return to normal activity.

Improvements with Solesta may not be apparent until 3 to 6 months after treatment. In a clinical study the most common risks of treatment with Solesta were mild to moderate pain or discomfort in the rectum or anus or slight bleeding/spotting following treatment.

A consult will be arranged here in our office with one of our trained physicians to review specific details of the procedure and answer any questions you may have prior to determining if this procedure is right for you.
