What is Rezūm?
Rezūm is a new minimally invasive, in-office treatment option that uses the natural energy stored in water vapor, or steam. It is a safe and effective treatment 1 available to relieve lower urinary tract symptoms associated with benign prostatic hyperplasia, or BPH.
How does Rezūm work?
During each treatment, sterile water vapor is released throughout the targeted prostate tissue. When the steam turns back into water, the cells are gently and immediately damaged, causing cell death. Over time, the body’s natural healing response removes the dead cells, shrinking the prostate. With the extra tissue removed, the urethra opens, reducing BPH symptoms. Most patients begin to experience symptom relief in as soon as two weeks with the majority of benefit occurring by 3 months and maintained out to 4 years.
