Medtronic InterStim™ II System

Recharge-free neurostimulator for bladder and bowel control

The InterStim™ II system is a recharge-free, long-term therapy that lets patients get full-body* MRI scans.

Once implanted, the Interstim™ II system stimulates the sacral nerve, which is believed to normalize neural signals between the bladder and brain and the bowel and the brain. 12

The recharge-free InterStim™ neurostimulator streamlines the implant procedure with a design that eliminates the need for the lead extension and uses fewer set screws.
