So often, women choose to “deal with” or “live with” urinary incontinence or fecal incontinence issues even when their daily routines are interrupted. Treatment for incontinence varies depending on the type of leakage and whether you have already tried other treatments and/or lifestyle changes. Fortunately, for those who have found that traditional incontinence treatment methods have proven ineffective, Interstim Neuromodulation provides an opportunity to return to your normal responsibilities free from the fear of leakage.
What is Interstim Neuromodulation?
Interstim Neuromodulation, also referred to as Medtronic Bladder Control Therapy, treats urinary retention not caused by an obstruction or symptoms of overactive bladder, including urinary urge incontinence (leakage) and significant symptoms of urgency-frequency. It also can be used in the treatment of fecal incontinence, or accidental leaking of stool.
When is Interstim Neuromodulation used?
Interstim Neuromodulation should be used after you have unsuccessfully tried or could not tolerate other treatments such as medications and behavioral therapy. Patients should always discuss the potential risks and benefits of the therapy with a physician. Learn more about Interstim Neuromodulation/Medtronic Bladder Control Therapy.
