Minimally-invasive InterStim therapy

InterStim therapy is a proven neuromodulation therapy that targets problems with the nerve response between the brain and bladder. The therapy involves implanting an electronic device that acts like a pacemaker for the bladder, giving patients more advance notice of a need to visit the restroom. The therapy is often used to help people who have not had success with medications or biofeedback options.

InterStim therapy is used to treat:

  • Urinary urgency (a sudden and compelling desire to pass urine)
  • Urinary incontinence (involuntary urination)
  • Frequent urination (having to go to the bathroom often, especially at night)
  • Bladder leakage
  • Urinary retention (inability to completely empty the bladder)
  • Fecal incontinence

For more information about InterStim therapy, call 803-748-9966 to request an appointment with one of our physicians.
