What is Medtronics Therapy?

Medtronics is a solution for overactive bladder (OAB) and non-obstructive urinary retention. When it comes to bladder control therapy, the InterStim system is the most proven.  Doctors have been using it to treat patients for 25 years.  Also called sacral neuromodulation (SNM), this therapy may help you experience fewer trip to the bathroom, fewer accidents, and more confidence listing with OAB. 

What are the benefits of Medtronics/Interstim system?

Evidence suggests that breakdowns in the bladder-brain communication pathway are a root cause of OAB and non-obstructive urinary retention.  That is why conventional treatments may not produce the results you want – they don’t directly target this miscommunication.  Unlike conventional treatments, the Medtronic InterStim system gently stimulates the sacral nerves in your pelvic area that control your bladder.  This may help restore bladder-brain communication and reduce your symptoms.

Who is a good candidate for Medtronics/InterStim Therapy?

It is up to you and your healthcare provider to determine if you are a good candidate for Medtronics/InterStim Therapy.

Medtronics Therapy is an approved treatment for patients suffering with:

  • Overactive bladder (OAB) - the urgent need to urinate which may result in frequent urination and/or incontinence (leakage) episodes
  • Urinary frequency - the need to urinate 8 or more times a day, which may or may not be associated with urgency
  • Urinary urgency incontinence (UUI) - the urgent need to urinate or trouble holding urine before making it to the restroom
  • Fecal (bowel) incontinence – involuntary loss of stool which may or may not be associated with urgency
  • Nonobstructive urinary retention (UR) – the inability to completely empty the bladder which may result in trouble urinating or frequent small voids
  • Medtronics/InterStimTherapy is indicated for patients who have failed conservative treatments, such as lifestyle changes, physical therapy, or medications.
