Leading-edge Bladder Control Therapy

Interstim®: Revive Your Lifestyle

Approved by the FDA, Medtronic's Interstim® device not only reduces bowel issues in many cases, but has an 80 to 85 percent cure rate for bladder control problems in both men and women.

How InterStim® Works

A thin, flexible wire is inserted into your sacral spinal nerve, located near the tailbone. This wire is attached to an external test stimulator that can be worn on a waistband. This palm-sized device stimulates your sacral nerve to help the bladder, sphincter and pelvic floor muscles work more effectively together. During a two-week trial period, you adjust the intensity of the current until you find the right balance between an overactive and inactive bladder.

Long-Term InterStim® Therapy

If you experience a 50 percent or more improvement in bladder function during the trial, you may opt for an outpatient procedure to get a neurostimulator placed under your skin.

Learn more about how this therapy can help you and your bladder or bowel problems.
