Interstim- Sacral Neuromodulation

What happens when medications for OAB don't work or are not tolerated?

There are several methods to treat OAB with nerve stimuation, akin a to "bladder pacemaker" that stimulates the S3 nerve root (without touching it) and alters that abnormal overactive signal by intercepting it before sending it to the spinal cord and brain.

It is a very interesting and novel method of treating OAB, a technology that has been now FDA approved for about a decade.

More to come. . . .
