You might seek InterStim as a treatment option if you wake up so many times during the night to urinate that it is affecting your ability to get a good nights rest, you sprint to the bathroom and still don’t make it there in time, and/or you experience urine leakage after coughing or laughing or after the feeling the urgent need to urinate. The point is all of these issues are negatively affecting your life and InterStim could be a treatment option that helps you get rid of it so that you can get back to the life you deserve.
Tell me more about InterStim
InterStim is a device that sends electrical impulses to the sacral nerves, which stimulate the nerves that suppress bladder contraction. The device is small, about the size of an AAA battery, and it is inserted beneath the skin in the hip area. InterStim is a very effective treatment as 4 out of 5 patients who have had the procedure have been able to go back to their normal lives, once again controlling their lives and their bladders (Mayo Clinic, “InterStim Therapy”, 2015).
