BLADDER OUT OF CONTROL?
WE CAN HELP

Bladder control problems, including overactive bladder (OAB) and non-obstructive urinary retention, are treatable conditions. They’re not a normal part of aging. And you shouldn’t have to deal with them on your own.

WHAT IS INTERSTIM?

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.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

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. 

YOUR LIFE IS WAITING

Medtronic bladder control therapies deliver significant symptom improvements for people with OAB and non-obstructive urinary retention.1, 2
