Why Is The Medtronic Therapy Different?

Communication Is Critical

Evidence suggests that breakdowns in the bowel-brain communication pathway are the root cause of chronic fecal incontinence (FI).While more conservative therapies focus on the bowel and related muscles, Medtronic bowel control therapy targets the nerves, which is thought to help restore normal bowel function.*
