InterStim Therapy treats urinary retention, (inability to completely empty the bladder) and the symptoms of overactive bladder, including urinary urge incontinence (leakage) and significant symptoms of urgency – frequency. It should be used after you have tried other treatments such as medications and behavioral therapy and they have not worked, or you could not tolerate them.
Interstim is a type of device that sends mild electrical pulses through a small wire that is inserted near your tailbone. This therapy targets the communication between the brain and the nerve that controls the bladder.
