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.
