prostate enlargement (bph) treatments

rezum steam therapy

BPH is a condition that affects many men as they age and is caused by the enlargement of the prostate gland.

This can lead to a range of symptoms, such as frequent urination, difficulty starting and stopping urination, and a weak urine stream.

Rezum steam therapy is a minimally invasive procedure that is designed to treat the symptoms of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH).

About Rezum Steam Therapy

Rezum therapy is a non-surgical procedure that uses steam to shrink the prostate gland and relieve these symptoms. The procedure is performed under general anaesthesia and typically takes well less than an hour to complete. During the procedure, a small device is inserted into the urethra and guided to the prostate gland. Once in position, the device delivers steam to the prostate gland, which destroys the excess tissue and causes the gland to shrink.

Following the procedure, most patients will need a catheter draining the bladder, until the initial swelling settles down, and then patients can expect to experience some mild discomfort, such as a burning sensation during urination, for a few weeks. However, most patients are able to return to their normal activities within a few days of the catheter being removed. Full results can take up to 8-12 weeks to develop as the prostate gland shrinks.
There are several reasons why patients may choose Rezum therapy over other BPH treatments. Rezum therapy is minimally invasive which makes the procedure safer and more comfortable for patients, with fewer complications and a quicker recovery time. Additionally, Rezum therapy is effective at relieving BPH symptoms and improving quality of life.
