If conservative therapy fails, the practitioners at Women’s Excellence have the knowledge, training, and support needed to make InterStim therapy a success for any patient
Metamora, MI (PRWEB) November 20, 2012
Medtronic InterStim for Urinary Control is an innovative overactive bladder treatment for patients who have failed or could not tolerate more conservative treatments to achieve bladder control. The peripheral nerve evaluation (PNE) for Medtronic InterStim is a simple, office-based test now available at Women’s Excellence in Bladder Control, to determine if the patient will have a good response with low level stimulation to the sacral nerve plexus in the lower back. If the PNE is successful, a permanent implant, much like a pacemaker, will be placed to help control bladder symptoms.The final implant includes a lead that delivers stimulation to the sacral nerve plexus and a pacemaker battery that is placed in the upper buttock and is not visible.
According to Debbie Henry, NP-C, a certified nurse practitioner at Women’s Excellence in Bladder Control, “What’s great about Medtronic InterStim for Urinary Control is that nobody knows the patient has it, it can eliminate use of bladder medications that are causing intolerable side effects, and patients do great after the procedure and tend to be very pleased with the results”. With the addition of Medtronic InterStim therapy for Urinary Control, Women’s Excellence in Bladder Control is prepared and eager to tackle any bladder control issue affecting women.
Bladder control issues can negatively affect a woman’s quality of life. Medtronic InterStim for Urinary Control offers women a viable, minimally invasive option when conservative bladder control methods fail. Medtronic InterStim can be used alone or in combination with other bladder control treatments. Many practices may offer Medtronic InterStim for Urinary Control, but none offer the caliber of expertise, maintenance, and service that Women’s Excellence in Bladder Control provides. “If conservative therapy fails, the practitioners at Women’s Excellence have the knowledge, training, and support needed to make InterStim therapy a success for any patient”, concludes Henry.
