Rezūm Therapy for Enlarged Prostate

We’re excited to tell you about a new procedure that we recently introduced into our practice at Uromedix in Aventura, Pembroke Pines and Hialeah.

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.

Rezūm Treatment Process

During each 9-second treatment, sterile water vapor is released throughout the targeted prostate tissue. When the steam contacts the prostate tissue, all the stored energy is released into the tissue. Your doctor will determine the amount of treatments you need, based on the size of your prostate.

Over time, your body’s natural healing response absorbs the treated tissue, shrinking the prostate. With the extra tissue removed, the urethra opens, reducing BPH symptoms.

Most patients begin to experience symptom relief in as soon as two weeks, and maximum benefit may occur within three months.1,2 Patient responses can and do vary.

Rezūm Therapy may be an option for those who have given up on watchful waiting and lifestyle changes, men who are dissatisfied with, have stopped or don’t want to start taking BPH medications, and men not interested in other minimally invasive or surgical BPH procedures.

For years, the primary options for treating BPH were through medications or invasive surgery. Rezūm Therapy is a natural, in-office therapy option for men who do not want to take medication or are dissatisfied with medication symptom relief and want to avoid invasive surgery or implants to treat their BPH.

Market research indicates that preserving sexual function is a priority for men when it comes to BPH treatments.3 Clinical studies show Rezūm Therapy treats the cause of BPH symptoms while preserving sexual function.1

Rezūm Therapy can be performed in a short visit at Uromedix’s office.

Rezūm Therapy is considered a covered benefit by Medicare and most private insurance. Patients should verify their benefits with their insurance company in advance of the scheduled procedure.

Clinical studies show that most men experience symptom relief as soon as two weeks after treatment with Rezūm Therapy, and maximum benefit may occur within three months.4 As with any procedure, patient responses can vary.

Clinical studies show that following treatment with Rezūm Therapy, most men return to regular activities within a few days.2 Uromedix will make personal recommendations on resuming activity.
