InterStim for OAB
Having an Overactive Bladder, or OAB, is more common than you think. As you age, your chances of having an overactive bladder increases. Fortunately, common problems means more medical awareness, and a greater chance for treatment.
InterStim is a device that, once implanted, sends mild electrical pulses to the sacral nerves. The sacral nerves control both your bladder and the muscles that relate to urinary function. The InterStim device helps synchronize communication between your brain and bladder, easing the desire to urinate often.
