Sacral neuromodulation is a proven treatment option for bladder and bowel control. The treatment is delivered via the InterStim system. The implanted neurostimulator and lead electrically stimulate the sacral nerve which is thought to normalize neural communication between the bladder and brain and between the bowel and brain.
The InterStim system for bladder control and bowel control helps to control symptoms of overactive bladder, non-obstructive urinary retention, and chronic fecal incontinence through direct modulation of the nerve activity.
SACRAL NEUROMODULATION FOR BLADDER CONTROL
Not all patients benefit from standard medical therapy. Pharmacological therapy may be required for overactive bladder (OAB) for the treatment of the muscular component in bladder control. Neuromodulation is thought to help normalize neural activity from the bladder to the brain, enabling patients to experience improved urinary function
Sacral Neuromodulation offers effective bladder control and proven efficacy in some patients for whom more conventional intervention has been unsatisfactory. Leading theories of the mechanism of action suggest that Sacral Neuromodulation works by modulating neural communication traveling between the bladder and brain enabling patients to experience restored† urinary function.
SACRAL NEUROMODULATION FOR BOWEL CONTROL
Not all patients benefit from conservative treatment options such as medication, diet modification, and exercise. Sacral Neuromodulation is a minimally invasive option that can restore bowel function. Sacral Neuromodulation for Bowel Control is effective, safe, and may offer patients improved quality of life.
