InterStim Therapy


Exceptional Doctors, Exceptional Care

Bowel incontinence can be an embarrassing topic. Those suffering from bowel control issues have often tried many treatment options, such as bulking agents, dietary changes, exercises, medication, and surgery.

Medtronic’s InterStim Therapy could be a lasting solution to bowel incontinence for patients who have tried other options with no success.

Medtronic Bowel Control Therapy can offer the following:

  • Proven control to stop or greatly reduce embarrassing accidents
  • Significantly improved quality of life
  • A minimally invasive treatment when other therapies fail

InterStim Therapy is successful because it uses a device that provides gentle electrical stimulation to help correct communication errors between the bowel and the brain, getting directly to the source of the problem.

All patients must undergo an evaluation to ensure InterStim Therapy is the correct solution. This short, minimally invasive procedure can be done in-office, and patients will still be free to do most regular daily activities during the evaluation. After the evaluation, you and your doctor will review the results and decide if Medtronic Bowel Control Therapy is the proper long-term treatment for you.
