Metroplex Adventist Hospital is offering a revolutionary therapeutic approach for patients suffering from urinary control, such as urinary retention and symptoms of overactive bladder.
The InterStem Therapy treatment is a simplified, minimally invasive procedure that uses sacral nerve stimulation. Potential candidates for the procedure include patients who failed or could not tolerate more conservative treatments for symptoms of urinary urge incontinence and urgency frequency.
InterStem Therapy is a long-term, effective treatment for appropriately selected patients and has a major impact on the patient’s quality of life. The treatment often demonstrates improvements in at least one of the following:
- Number of leaking episodes each day
- Severity of leaking episodes
- Number of pads/diapers replaced each day
- Number of voids each day
- Volume of void
- Degree of urgency prior to void
