Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) is an enlargement of the prostate gland affecting about 50% of men by age 60, and up to 90% of men by age 85.
The Rezum System offers an effective alternative to lifelong medication and prostate surgery.
Rezum Water Vapor Therapy is a minimally invasive procedure which involves injecting sterile water vapor (steam) into the prostate gland. This short, in-office procedure uses the natural energy stored in a few drops of water to shrink the prostate. So urine can flow freely. There are no incisions, no general anesthesia, and most patients return to regular activities within a few days. And, it preserves sexual function.
REZUM is suitable for the majority of men presenting with urinary symptoms due to an enlarged prostate. It is carried out as a day procedure and is an excellent choice for those who wish to retain their sexual function.
