Mitesh Parekh, M.D., Member of InterStim™ Center of Excellence Program
Zanesville, Ohio (Feb. 18, 2022) – Mitesh Parekh, M.D., a urogynecologist with Genesis Urogynecology, has been recognized by Medtronic, a medical device company, as a member of the InterStim™ Center of Excellence Program. This recognition is awarded to physicians for demonstrating exemplary use of the InterStim™ system and a commitment to patient care for those suffering from symptoms associated with overactive bladder, fecal incontinence and non-obstructive urinary retention.
“The Genesis Urogynecology team is pleased to receive this recognition from Medtronic,” said Dr. Parekh. “Being a member of the InterStim™ Center of Excellence Program demonstrates our commitment to helping our patients live a happier, healthier life.”
Requirements for the recognition include the physician must be board-certified in urology, obstetrics and gynecology or urogynecology; establishing a branded care pathway, completing Medtronic education courses, and implanting a minimum of 100 patients with the InterStim™ system, among others.
InterStim™ is a sacral nerve stimulation therapy that re-establishes communication between the brain and bladder or bowels. It can regulate the sacral nerves’ function, so they can interpret signals from the brain and pass them on to the surrounding pelvic floor muscles. This enables a return to normal bladder and bowel function.
