The InterStim™ System by Medtronic

The InterStim™ System targets the nerves that control your bladder to help it function normally again.

Implanting an InterStim™ system has risks similar to any surgical procedure, including swelling, bruising, bleeding and infection. Talk with a Central Ohio Urology Group doctor about ways to minimize these risks. Complications can occur with the evaluation, including movement of the wire, technical problems with the device and some temporary pain.

Your doctor or nurse will provide you with the information regarding how to operate the test device, and inform you of other precautions related to the evaluation and activity restrictions.
