To know what Rezum® therapy can do, you must first learn what it is meant to treat. The Rezum® Water Vapor Therapy, which is conducted here at Z Urology is done to treat BPH.
BPH is excess growth of prostate tissue that compresses and obstructs the urethra, reducing the flow of urine from the bladder and sometimes blocking it entirely. Symptoms include waking up multiple times during the night to urinate; frequency, urgency, irregular and weak urinary flow; anxiety; challenges with sexual function and limitations on daily activities.
Rezum® is a safe and effective minimally invasive treatment designed to relieve BPH symptoms by reducing the extra prostate tissue causing the problems being experienced.
How Does it Work
Rezum® is a treatment for BPH that is performed in an outpatient setting. It uses the stored thermal energy in water vapor to treat the extra prostate tissue that is causing the symptoms.
Who Can Benefit from the Procedure
Those who benefit most, are men who have elected to discontinue or who have not taken their take BPH medications. Those who are not receptive to other surgical BPH procedures. And guys who have shown that they are not bothered by symptoms enough to elect an invasive surgical procedure.
What are the Side Effects
Most reported side effects are mild to moderate in severity and are typically resolved within a few weeks. The most frequent side effect being urinary symptoms such as frequency, urgency, discomfort during urination, or blood in the urine.
How Soon Before I See Results
Improvement for the symptoms being suffered following the procedure is gradual. Significant symptom improvement is typically seen in as soon as two weeks. Keep in mind though, that responses to the treatment vary.
Remember, Z Urology not only does Rezum® therapy, but also provide state-of-the-art urologic care in the South Florida area with a focus on both male and female urology.

Men all over the world consider different ways of birth control. When most people think of birth control, they usually think of the pills that women take in order to stop the pregnancy cycle. However, there are tons of different types of birth control. Condoms, IUDs, birth control implants, birth control shots and of course, a vasectomy. A vasectomy is a permanent form of birth control that involves removing or blocking the van deferens from being able to transport sperm from the testicles to the penis. Out of all of the birth control options, a vasectomy is one of the most effective forms.
Procedure of the Vasectomy
The first step of a vasectomy is finding a trusted Urologist to take care of one of the most sensitive parts of your body. Z Urology is home to fellowship-trained and very experienced South Florida urologists. Your traditional vasectomy consists of making a couple slits within the scrotum with a scalpel. Through these slits, the surgeon will enter the scrotum and remove the vas deferens within. Once the vas deferens have been removed, there will no longer be any transfer of sperm from the testicles to the penis. Your scrotum will then be stitched up and sealed in order for the surgery to complete and the recovery period to begin.
Recovering After a Vasectomy
As all surgeries, after a vasectomy you may experience pain and discomfort within the area. As long as this doesn’t become worse or an intense pain, then everything is going according to plan. The recovery period isn’t as long as you would assume. A wait period of 2 – 3 days is recommended after the completion of a vasectomy before returning to work. If pain is bothering, an ice pack is also recommended. Do not be shocked by having blood within your semen for the following few weeks. Your body must drain itself of the remaining semen in order to completely nullify the chance of pregnancy. After 8 – 15 weeks, your sperm count should be close, if not already, zero. Your urologist will help guide you through the recovery phase as well.

Advancements in medical technology have led to some of the most amazing developments for convenience and safety for patients. One specific technology targeted toward Prostate Cancer is the Robot Assisted Laparoscopic Prostatectomy, otherwise known as RALP. It is important that if you have any early symptoms of Prostate Cancer, to contact a professional Urologist at Z Urology immediately. RALP makes use of robotic arms that fine tune surgeon’s hand movements into perfect precision. This innovation in medical technology has brought an entirely new enhanced version of surgery. Allowing doctors to focus on their vision, control and dexterity, then channel them into RALP to complete perfection.
Early Symptoms of Prostate Cancer
It is imperative to your health to contact a Coral Springs Urologist at Z Urology if you have any early symptoms of prostate cancer. Early symptoms of prostate cancer include:
- Trouble urinating or painful urination
- Decreased force in the stream of urine
- Blood in the urine
- Blood in the semen
- Chronic pain in the lower back, hips or thighs
- Discomfort in the pelvic area
- Bone pain
- Erectile dysfunction
- Swelling/Weakness in legs or difficulty walking
Prostate cancer is most easily treated in its earliest stages. About 85% of men with prostate cancer are recognized in its most early stages allowing for treatment. However, if prostate cancer progresses to serious levels, then it becomes very dangerous.
RALP & the da Vinci System
Robotic Assisted Laparoscopic Prostatectomy is the newest solution to prostate cancer surgery. RALP works through the use of robotic arms that calculate precision movements based off of the surgeon’s hands. The da Vinci System, under the use of Z Urology, features a magnified 3D high-definition vision system and special wristed instruments that bend and rotate much greater than the human wrist. Innovative systems such as these allow for new levels of dexterity and control for the expert surgeons and urologists located at Z Urology.
