About Jo Ann Butler Medtronic, InterStim Therapy


Medtronic - InterStim Therapy Sales Representative

I am a Medtronic InterStim Sales Representative and I work with physicians on the Gulf Coast of Florida in Manatee, Pinellas, Pasco and Hernando counties.  I specialize in Medtronic’s restorative bladder control therapy that is proven to work long-term in people with a bladder condition who have not had success with other treatments, such as oral medications, and behavioral therapies like Kegel exercises, physical therapy, and dietary and fluid changes.

Medtronic’s Bladder Control Therapy delivered by the InterStim System can significantly improve your quality of life by reducing frequent urges to urinate, frequent leaks, and the inability to fully empty your bladder.

Unlike other therapies, Medtronic’s Bladder Control Therapy delivered by the InterStim System addresses the miscommunication between the bladder and the brain that could be causing your symptoms. The InterStim System uses a device that provides gentle electrical stimulation to help correct the communication problem between the bladder and or bowel and the brain.

InterStim therapy starts with a simple, in-office evaluation to determine if the therapy is right for the patient.  Based on the outcome of the evaluation, the patient and the doctor will determine the next steps for treatment.

Medtronic Bladder Control Therapy was created by Medtronic, and over 150,000 people worldwide have received the InterStim System. It was FDA-approved in 1997 for urge incontinence and 1999 for urinary retention and urgency-frequency. In May 2011, the InterStim System was approved by the FDA to treat patients that suffer from fecal incontinence. Medicare and many other private insurance companies cover InterStim Therapy.
