This FDA-approved treatment can eliminate or greatly reduce bladder control symptoms for men and women suffering from urge incontinence, urgency-frequency or urinary retention problems. So you can return the life you once enjoyed without worrying about where the next bathroom is.

What is Interstim?

InterStim Therapy works with the pelvic nerves located near the tailbone. The sacral nerves control your bladder and the muscles related to urinary function. There are many situations where the pelvic nerves become dysfunctional and/or over stimulated. If the brain and sacral nerves don't communicate properly the nerves cannot tell the bladder to function properly which can lead to bladder control problems. InterStim Therapy targets this communication problem by modulating the nerves with mild stimulation.

Nothing Else has worked. How do I know if this will?

Every time your doctor suggests a new treatment only to discover it doesn't work for you, you surely feel a bit more frustrated. Who wouldn't? Well while InterStim Therapy isn't right for everyone, it has helped thousands of people just like you greatly reduce or eliminate their bladder control symptoms.

The test stimulation or "perc test" involves. During the trial stimulation, which typically lasts three to five days, you may continue many of your daily activities with caution. You will keep a diary to document your urinary symptoms or the lack thereof.
