Sacral Neuromodulation or “InterStim” is a treatment option for patients with both bladder as well as bowel control issues. In addition, it can sometimes be a great treatment option for patients who are unable to empty their bladder adequately.
The implanted Interstim system electrically stimulates the sacral nerve, which is thought to normalize neural communication between the bladder and brain and between the bowel and brain.
Medtronic lets you choose between recharge-free and rechargeable systems for bladder or bowel control. Together, you and your doctor can decide which InterStim™ system is the best fit for the life you want to live.
Medtronic bladder control therapies deliver significant symptom improvements for people with OAB and non-obstructive urinary retention.1, 2
