Interstim™ for Overactive Bladder

Sacral Nerve Stimulation InterStim™ for Urinary Incontinence

Reject Incontinence and its Effect on Your Life with Dr. Paul Jo and Urology Care of Central Florida

Are you in control of your urinary tract system, or is it controlling you? When you’re suffering from incontinence, you’re never in complete control. And when you’re not in control, you’re likely to experience frequent leaks and the need to change pads, pants, and your plans.

Incontinence is a natural condition that develops with age, because of a procedure, or due to a health condition. But just because your body can no longer stop urine from staying in your bladder, it doesn’t mean that you have to accept it.  Learn more about your incontinence and our approach to your care here.

If you’re unexpectedly releasing urine, schedule an appointment with Urology Care of Central Florida. You will learn more about your condition, treatment options, including sacral nerve stimulation with InterStim®, and how Dr. Paul Jo can bring you long-term relief.

Overactive bladder is a hinderance to your daily life.

What is InterStim® Sacral Nerve Stimulation Therapy, and How Does it Prevent Urinary Incontinence?

InterStim® is a sacral nerve stimulation therapy that allows you to regain bladder and bowel control. When an overactive bladder is causing incontinence, InterStim®, which is a small device placed near the pelvis, engages with the sacral nerves, stimulating them through pulses.

The sacral nerves control your bladder and bowel, and allow certain pelvic functions. A neurostimulator and lead in the device work together to stimulate the sacral nerve electrically, restoring proper neural activity, meaning that your brain and bladder will be in sync, enabling your urinary system to function properly.

The InterStim®  system is:

  • Reversible.
  • Conducted with a small device.
  • Designed to send electrical impulses to the sacral nerves.
  • Capable of lessening or stopping incontinence and other bladder-related issues.

The InterStim® device is inserted in the body through a minimally-invasive procedure conducted under anesthesia.

Are You A Candidate for Sacral Nerve Stimulation?

The InterStim® device is inserted in the body through a minimally-invasive procedure conducted under anesthesia.

Signs you may be a perfect candidate for sacral nerve stimulation through InterStim® include:

  • You have an overactive bladder.
  • You have urge incontinence.
  • Other treatments have not worked for you.
  • You do not have an obstruction (BPH, cancer, urethral stricture).

Before receiving the InterStim® system as a long-term treatment for incontinence, you will be tested during an evaluation, which will reveal if you will benefit from the system. You may also be asked to try medication and therapy before being considered as a candidate for InterStim®. Get started by scheduling an appointment with Urology Care of Central Florida.

Tell Me More! The Benefits of InterStim™

InterStim™  is an implanted system that sends mild electrical pulses to assist the communication between the bladder and the brain.

You can think of the InterStim™ implant as a type of “pacemaker” for the bladder. This implant is considered to be a neurostimulator—it stimulates the sacral nerves as it sends signals to them.

Treatment is minimally invasive, side effects are rare, and relief is REAL.

  • Decreased frequent urination in very small amounts
  • Reduce your sudden urge to go
  • Finally empty your bladder
