InterStim is a device your doctor can surgically implant to help treat urinary incontinence.

According to the MedtronicOff Site Icon company website, InterStim targets the nerves that control your bladder to help it function normally, without consistent leaks.

The system sends small electrical impulses to the nerves to allow your brain to communicate better with your bladder, according to Premier Physician Network (PPN) physicians. This helps control leaks.

For more information about InterStim, talk with your doctor.
