Interstim

Fecal incontinence is a very distressing problem, that most patient's suffer from alone, in silence. Patients often feel so embarrassed that they stop participating in everyday life and seclude themselves from the outside world.

The Interstim sacral nerve stimulator, made by Medtronic, can be implanted through a simple procedure. The device effectively gives new life to the damaged sphincter muscles, dramatically decreasing the amount and severity of incontinence, and in some cases eliminating it completely.

Dr. Kaye specializes in the work-up and treatment of fecal incontinence, and has been implanting Interstim devices into patients for the past 3 years with rousing success.

Dr. Kaye continues to bring cutting-edge and innovative technology to Good Samaritan Hospital, so that patients in the community can receive the most up-to-date care close to home.
