Sacral nerve stimulation is one of many new surgical modalities for fecal incontinence. Short-term results from sacral nerve stimulation have been more encouraging than those from other modalities. The aim of this study was to report the outcome of percutaneous nerve evaluation tests and sacral nerve stimulation for the treatment of fecal incontinence from a single center covering a period of 6 years since the procedure was introduced.
