Medtronic Bowel Control Therapy
Therapy for Chronic Fecal Incontinence
Chronic fecal incontinence, or the inability to control bowel movements, causes stool (feces) to leak unexpectedly from the rectum. For some people it may only occur during an occasional case of diarrhea, but for others, it is a chronic or recurring condition. When conservative treatments for fecal incontinence don’t relieve your symptoms, there is an alternative.
North Shore Gastroenterology offers Medtronic Bowel Control Therapy delivered by the InterStim™ system to correct the bowel-brain communication pathway that helps control the symptoms of chronic fecal incontinence.
- Targets the nerves that control your bowel to help it function normally again
- Is clinically proven to stop or greatly reduce bowel accidents
- Delivers significant and lasting improvement to people with chronic fecal incontinence
- Is the only therapy that lets you see if it works before you and your doctor decide
