considering sphincterplasty with SNS

Has anyone out there had sphincterplasty with the insertion of a sacral nerve stimulator? Has the SNS helped the surgery result that much more? I had a SNS placed a year ago to control urinary incontinence --but mostly for fecal incontinence ( it wasnt FDA approved for fecal yet-- so urologist had to prove me urinary incontinent too before insurance would pay for it) . I have also tried BioFeedback for about 8 months. Nothing has helped. FInally colo-rectal surgeon said I should have a sphincterplasty since I have very thin muscle. I went to Cleveland Clinic in Florida to see DrWexner which seems to be the guru on this subject. Now up to my insurance company if they will cover an out of state surgery etc. anyone hear of him and or have had a SNS placed before or after a sphincterplasty--and how is it going?
thanks for reply
