InterStim Therapy is a proven therapy used to treat urge incontinence, urinary frequency and overactive bladder in children. InterStim Therapy targets the communication problem between the brain and the nerves that control the bladder. If the nerves are not communicating properly, the bladder will not function correctly.
The InterStim system uses an external device during a trial assessment period and an internal device for long-term therapy. You and your Pediatric Urologist may decide to try InterStim Therapy by going through a trial assessment period. Based on the trial assessment, you and your Pediatric Urologist will determine the next step that is right for your child.
