The Rezum (Water Vapor Therapy)

"Revolutionizing BPH Treatment: Introducing Rezum Therapy"

As a urologist, I want to introduce you to Rezum, a minimally invasive water vapor therapy for the treatment of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). The prostate gland enlarges in men over 50 who have BPH, which causes urinary symptoms, including frequent urination, a weak stream, and difficulties initiating and halting urine.

Rezum is a minimally invasive therapy that shrinks the prostate and alleviates symptoms by using heated water vapor. The 30-hour to 1-hour-long treatment is carried out at the convenience of our outpatient clinic. Traditional surgical procedures have an efficient and safe alternative in Rezum, which has been shown to offer quick and persistent symptom alleviation.

The significant components of Rezum therapy

Rezum therapy uses controlled amounts of steam or water vapor to decrease the prostate gland tissue, which is the source of symptoms like frequent urination, urgency, and a weak stream. The therapy takes a few minutes to complete, and the steam is administered via a tiny, thin probe placed through a small incision in the skin.

Rezum therapy's key advantage is that it quickly and effectively relieves BPH symptoms without requiring significant surgery or a protracted recovery period. The operation requires minimal downtime and is minimally invasive, and patients can usually resume their regular activities in a few days.

  • Minimal Invasiveness: The treatment is done through a small urethral incision, resulting in minimal pain and a lower likelihood of problems.
  • Rapid Recovery: Rezum patients typically resume their regular activities in a matter of days, as opposed to many weeks or months with more conventional surgical procedures.
  • Rezum has been demonstrated to offer quick and persistent symptom alleviation and has a low risk of problems or adverse effects. Effective and Safe
  • Outpatient Procedure: A hospital stay is unnecessary by doing the therapy in the convenience of our outpatient clinic.
  • No Incontinence: Rezum does not cause incontinence and preserves sexual function, in contrast to other surgical treatments.

Risks and side effects: Like any medical procedure, Rezum therapy includes risks and potential side effects, such as bleeding, infection, and pain or discomfort. However, the likelihood of significant problems is limited because these are often moderate and transient.

Patient suitability: Rezum therapy may not be appropriate for all patients because the prostate gland's size, shape, age, and general health may affect how well it works. Rezum treatment, however, can provide many BPH-afflicted men a secure and efficient substitute for standard surgical procedures.

In conclusion, Rezum therapy is a state-of-the-art therapeutic option for men with BPH, providing prompt and efficient symptom alleviation with little interference with everyday life. I am enthusiastic about this treatment's potential to improve my patients' well-being as a urologist. I urge anyone experiencing BPH symptoms to go through their options with a trained healthcare provider.

Rezum therapy is a secure and practical choice for men who are experiencing BPH symptoms as a specialist in urologic care. Please get in touch with us if you have any inquiries or want to arrange a consultation. Our phone number is +90 850 460 1010, and our email address is [email protected]
