Dr. Jennifer Speranza, a colorectal surgeon in Rochester, NY, describes her approach to treating bowel incontinence. Bowel incontinence, also known as fecal incontinence, causes unexpected leaks or very frequent trips to the bathroom.
If you've tried other treatments but are still suffering from chronic bowel incontinence, talk with your doctor about whether Medtronic Bowel Control Therapy (Sacral Neuromodulation, delivered by the InterStim® System) may help you gain control and get back to the activities you enjoy. A short-term evaluation can help you decide whether this treatment is right for you.
