DON’T STRUGGLE WITH STOOL ACCIDENTS
Medicines often do not work and have many side effects. Stool accidents are embarrassing and having to wear diapers is detrimental to your health and quality of life. We are experts in bowel/stool control and can help you.
ADVANCED TECHNIQUES: BETTER OUTCOMES AND LESS SIDE EFFECTS
Advanced Interstim is a proprietary technique utilizing Medtronic’s Sacral Nerve Stimulation (or Interstim) technology that provides the best outcomes with minimal side effects. This is similar to implanting a small pacemaker or nerve stimulator for the rectum. We utilize Advanced technology with 3D geospatial mapping to precisely fix the root cause of stool accidents. This targeted millimeter accuracy improves outcomes and minimizes side effects. Urologists from around the world come to Advanced to learn from our talented team.
HOW DOES ADVANCED INTERSTIM WORK?
Advanced Nervestim fixes the root cause of stool accidents by fixing the pelvic nerves. It is a long term solution for FI with incredible precision and accuracy. It is covered by all major insurances including Aetna, Anthem, Blue Cross, Cigna, Humana, Medicare, and Medicare Advantage Plans.
