About Sacral Neuromodulation


Sacral Neuromodulation (Interstim® Therapy) is a novel treatment for management of many pelvic floor disorders such as urinary urgency, frequency, urinary incontinence, incomplete bladder emptying (retention) and fecal incontinence.  This therapy was introduced about 20 years ago and has evolved since then.  It works like a “Pacemaker” for bladder and bowel.  Interstim® works by stimulating the pelvic nerves.  The electrical stimulation will be transferred to brain and through a complex mechanism, the function of pelvic nerves will be improved.
