InterStim® Sacral Nerve Stimulation Therapy: What is it and how does it prevent urinary incontinence?
InterStim® is a therapy that stimulates the sacral nerve so that you can regain bladder and bowel control. InterStim® is a small device that is placed near the pelvis in order to stop an overactive bladder. The device sends stimulating pulses to the sacral nerve to help control it.
The sacral nerves are the nerves that control your bowels and your bladder. The device is made up of a lead attached to a neurostimulator that work together to restore neural activity to the sacral nerve. This allows for your brain and bladder to be in sync which will result in better urinary function.
The InterStim® system is:
- Conducted with a small device
- Designed to send electrical impulses to the sacral nerves
- Capable of lessening or stopping incontinence and other bladder related issues
- Inserted during a minimally invasive procedure under anesthesia
