Getting InterStim™ Therapy for Bladder or Bowel Control

If your bladder and/or bowel control problems are preventing you from living a full life, sacral neuromodulation with our InterStim Therapy system may provide relief. The minimally-invasive implant surgery can be done under local anaesthetic and may not require a hospital stay. Most people return to their regular activities within a few days.

Is It Right for You?

Some people find that standard treatments for bladder or bowel control problems don’t work well for them. Others can’t tolerate the side-effects of medications, or want to avoid irreversible treatment options. Find out if InterStim Therapy is the right treatment for your bladder or bowel symptoms.

Surgery: What to Expect

Get information on a trial assessment to determine if InterStim Therapy will work for you. If you achieve good results from the trial assessment, you can discuss what to expect before, during, and after the simple, short operation.
