Rezum® uses radiofrequency energy to convert a few drops of sterile water to stored thermal energy in the form of vapor. This is injected into the excess prostate tissue that is blocking the flow of urine. The vapor turns back into water, releasing stored energy into the cell membranes to destroy the excess tissue.
Symptoms begin to subside gradually. Patients should start to see significant symptom improvement in four to six weeks following the procedure.
Benefits of Rezum® include:
Simple five minute outpatient treatment performed in your physician's office
Preserves sexual and urinary function
Allows patients to return to normal activities within a few days
Covered by Medicare and most Private Insurance payers
Allows patients to discontinue most medications prescribed for BPH
