Medtronic's InterStim Solution
If conservative therapies, such as medications, bowel training, and making changes in your diet, are not helping advanced therapies may be able to turn things around. Medtronic Bowel Control Therapy delivered by the InterStim system works at repairing the communication lines between your bowel and your brain, unlike any conservative therapy methods.
The InterStim system is surgically implanted. The size of the InterStim system is about the size of a couple of quarters, and over 250,000 patients have already experienced the relief that comes with the surgery. 89% of those patients report long-term successes, such as significant quality of life improvement, increase in activities, and, of course, decreased anxiety and shame.
The InterStim system is FDA-approved and minimally invasive. So if bowel problems are affecting your quality of life, don't believe that you have to settle for accidents or planning your life around the availability of a bathroom. Talk to your doctor about Medtronic's Bowel Control Therapy and take the first step in getting your life back!
