Bladder Control Therapy (Sacral Neuromodulation)

Bladder Control Therapy (Sacral Neuromodulation)

The Urology Group of Princeton uses Medtronic Bladder Control Therapy (Sacral Neuromodulation), aka The Interstim® System, to help people, with certain bladder-related conditions, resume everyday normal activities, return to work, and live their lives.

InterStim® Therapy is approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration as a sacral nerve stimulator for the treatment of urinary incontinence, high urinary frequency, and urinary retention.

This therapy, entailing the implantation of a programmable stimulator, delivers a low amplitude electrical stimulation to the sacral nerve (located in the lower back). By stimulating this nerve, a signal is sent that manipulates a contraction within the pelvic floor. Over time these contractions rebuild the strength of the organs and muscles within it and is a proven therapy that targets the communication problem between the brain and the nerves that control the bladder.
