Percutaneous Implantation of Neurostimulator Evaluation | Print |
The InterStim II neurostimulator for overactive bladder, urinary retention, fecal incontinence and constipation.

InterStim II is a small device which is surgically implanted to stimulate your sacral nerves with mild electrical pulses. The sacral nerves control your bladder and bowel. Sacral Neuromodulation is used to treat overactive bladder, urinary retention, fecal incontinence and constipation. If you have not experienced success with more standard treatments, this reversible treatment may be a good option for you.
How it works:
The sacral nerves control your bladder, your bowel, your rectum and the muscles related to urinary and anal functions. By stimulating these nerves with a mild electric cUlTent, the neurostimulator helps your bowel, rectum and bladder to work as they should.
