Bowel incontinence or Accidental Bowl Leakage is the inability for a person to control their bowel movements. It is a common problem and anyone can suffer from it, but is most common in older adults. This condition is also more likely to affect women as a result of childbirth.

While lifestyle changes, such as diet and exercise, or other conservative options such as physical therapy are often the first line of defense, some cases may call for a surgical option.

One of the latest technologies which Drs. Senter and Allen have found notable success for their patients is the utilization of Medtronic Bowel Control Therapy, delivered throught the InterStim® System. Similar to a pacemaker, Medtronic Bowel Control Therapy uses an implantable system, that sends mild electrical pulses to the sacral nerves. The therapy is reversible by turning off or surgically removing the neurostimulator.
