Interstim Therapy for Bladder Control

Interstim Therapy for Bladder Control

Interstim Therapy for Bladder ControlYorktowne Urology of York, PA understands that most people feel uncomfortable discussing bladder control problems with their friends, family and doctor. But if you suffer from any of the symptoms of overactive bladder (OAB), you’re not alone. More than 33 million Americans deal with OAB, defined as urgency frequency and urge incontinence. InterStim therapy is a treatment option available for overactive bladder.

What is InterStim therapy?

InterStim therapy is a reversible therapy used to treat urinary incontinence, frequency and incomplete bladder emptying. An implantable device is used and sends mild electrical pulses to the sacral nerves. Located near the tailbone, the sacral nerves control the bladder and the muscles related to urinary function. If the brain and sacral nerves don’t communicate correctly, the nerves can’t tell the bladder to function properly.
