InterStim

Patients who have tried other forms of urinary incontinence management, but who have not experienced success, may be candidates for InterStim therapy. InterStim uses nueromodulation therapy to resolve communication problems between a patient’s brain and her bladder. Patients will need to undergo an evaluation to determine whether or not InterStim is the right choice for their incontinence management. During this evaluation, a patient will “test out” InterStim for a trial period, after this initial stage, a PGOMG provider will discuss the trial’s results with the patient and decide if InterStim is the right choice.

A successful InterStim test run should lead to a patient experiencing a significant decrease in urinary activity throughout a given day. Patients who suffer from urinary incontinence who are interested in InterStim should contact their PGOMG provider.

Fecal Incontinence Also known as a bowel control issue, fecal incontinence is the accidental passing of stool. Fecal incontinence is generally caused by constipation, childbirth, hemorrhoids or muscle damage/weakness. Our staff is trained in treating this difficult and unpleasant problem.Once diagnosed, fecal incontinence may be treated with:

  • Diet and nutrition education
  • Medication
  • Surgery
  • Electrical stimulation
  • Biofeedback

There are several options available to help control fecal incontinence. Patients who experience the accidental passing of stool should contact their PGOMG provider.
