What is Rezūm Water Vapor Therapy?
Rezūm is an effective treatment for men with enlarged prostate (BPH) symptoms. In summary, the Rezūm system utilizes water vapor energy powered by radio frequency to deliver targeted, controlled doses of thermal energy to the region of the prostate that causes symptoms such as frequency, irregular flow, urgency, weak stream, straining to urinate and waking during the night to urinate.
Patients with BPH opt for Rezūm as a way to get off medication and avoid surgery. Rezūm provides a similar result to surgery without the side-effects (no sexual side-effects, no cutting, no incontinence, and little discomfort post procedure). Rezūm has been found to shrink the prostate by 30-40%.
Each Rezūm procedure takes about 2-4 minutes and is a rigid cystoscopy with 2-4, 9-second Water Vapor treatments delivered into the prostate tissue. Our urologists perform the Rezūm procedure in our clinic inAventura or at an outpatient setting.
