Incontinence can get in the way of your daily life, but at Hoag we offer options to help you feel like yourself again.
For patients with overactive bladder, InterStimTM therapy can be a successful treatment option. InterStimTM is a device that stimulates the sacral nerve. When the brain and the sacral nerve do not communicate properly you may not know when it is time to urinate. The InterStimTM device is implanted to send electronic pulses to the sacral nerve and helps you feel the urge to go to the bathroom.
How it Works
The device’s wires are inserted into your body near the sacral nerve and they are attached to an external device that is clipped to your clothing. You can adjust the level and frequency of the pulses to your specific needs.
This non-invasive device is not a permanent device and can be removed at a later date.
