What if there was finally relief from your bladder control issues available at our Pittston urology office? What if there was a way to stop having to run to the bathroom multiple times throughout the day? What if you were guaranteed to have fewer accidents? 

What if you got your confidence and your life back?

This is the time you should talk to Dr. Michael Campenni at Greater Pittston Urology about a urinary incontinence solution called Medtronic Bladder Control Therapy delivered by the InterStim™ system. It might sound complicated, but you’re going to be amazed at how this simple device can give you back the freedom to live an active, healthy life.

What is it & How Does it Work?

This kind of therapy works by stimulating something called your sacral nerves. The device sends tiny electrical impulses to these nerves which are located in your lower back, right above your tailbone.

The reason we target these sensitive nerves is that when there’s a lack of or miscommunication between them and your brain. These nerves are specifically in charge of controlling your bladder and the muscles that you need for urination. 

Why This Treatment is Different

One of the most significant benefits of this type of therapy for patients who visit our urology office in Pittston is you can try it before you make a final decision. Patients also like the fact that the treatment is reversible if you change your mind in the future. You won’t have to worry about repeat office visits or self-catheterization any more with the InterStim system!

While every experience is different, patients generally see a significant reduction in overactive bladder symptoms such as:

– The sudden, uncontrollable urge to urinate

– Involuntary loss of urine after the urge to urinate

– Urinating eight or more times in one day

– Getting up twice (or more) every night to urinate

It’s important to know that this kind of therapy shouldn’t be considered a cure for your bladder control issues if we remove the system; your symptoms will likely come back.

What’s Next?
