What is Rezūm?
Rezūm is a minimally-invasive alternative to pharmaceutical treatment and more invasive surgeries like the TURP procedure that are frequently prescribed for BPH. The Rezūm treatment allows men to go off or avoid medications altogether.
Additionally, with Rezūm, men will not experience the sexual dysfunction side-effects of surgery such as retrograde ejaculation (<10% with Rezūm) or erectile dysfunction (0% with Rezūm). The one-time Rezūm treatment allows men to return to their regular routine quickly, without the hospitalization and recovery associated with surgery.
How does it work?
Rezūm uses radiofrequency to heat water into vapor (steam), which is then injected directly into prostate. Vapor turns into water on contact with the prostate tissue, creating controlled damage to the cells that cause obstruction, discomfort, and symptoms associated with BPH. Over time (~3 months), your body will absorb and remove the treated tissue through the natural healing response.
