InterStim Therapy

for Overactive Bladder

InterStim Therapy for overactive bladder

InterStim Therapy is an implantable device that targets the nerves that control your bladder to help it function normally again. It works by modulating the nerves to the bladder and improving urinary urgency, frequency, and waking up at night to urinate. InterStim Therapy expands options for patients with urge incontinence, urgency-frequency, or non-obstructive urinary retention.

How Does InterStim Therapy Work?

Communication between your brain and bladder is critical. That’s why conventional treatments may not produce the results you want - they don’t target the miscommunication between your bladder and brain.
