InterStim Bowel Control Therapy

About InterStim Bowel Control Therapy

Fecal incontinence (accidental leaking of stool) affects more than 20 million American adults. For those who suffer from it and have been unsuccessful with diet changes, physical therapy, and medications, the InterStim™ system may be an option.

For some, miscommunication between the bowel and brain may be the cause of their bowel control problems. To correct this, the InterStim™ system uses a process known as sacral neuromodulation to deliver mild electrical pulses to the sacral nerves. These electrical pulses are meant to normalize the bowel-brain communication pathway, restoring bowel function.

To be a candidate for the system, you must first experience success from a temporary trial of the therapy. At GAP, we perform initial evaluations and place the temporary wire implant to determine if you are a candidate for the permanent solution.

I live in Hickory and was going to gastroenterologist associates of Hickory. Horrible experience to say the least. I would show up at appointment and then they would send me a no-show and try to charge me for it. Then I was referred to gastroenterology Associates of the Piedmont of Winston Salem. Probably the best Doctor visit that I’ve had in my life. The staff was very professional they were very efficient . Dr. Brian Smith was very professional and very personable. Took the time to listen and talk about my condition very thorough. I was in and out of his office within an hour. Definitely deserves more than a five star rating.
