The Secca procedure involves delivery of radiofrequency energy to the muscles of the anal canal, which results in a change in tissue compliance and corresponding improvement in incontinence symptoms. This outpatient procedure takes approximately 60 minutes and is performed in an endoscopy suite or ambulatory surgery unit with the patient sedated. Patients go home approximately 1-2 hours after the procedure and typically resume normal activities within several days.
How Secca Works
1. Energy is delivered to the tissue of the anal canal
2. Multiple small tissue contractions are formed
3. Anal sphincter function is significantly restored
