Rezum Therapy: Minimally Invasive Treatment for BPH



REZUM SYSTEM FOR ENLARGED PROSTATE

Patient Discusses the Rezum Procedure



Millions of men suffering from the disruptive symptoms of an enlarged prostate, including frequent nighttime urination, weak urine stream, and an inability to empty the bladder may be candidates for Rezum Therapy. Rezum Therapy is a minimally invasive treatment for BPH. Rezum Therapy uses the natural energy of water vapor to treat excess prostate tissue, without any cutting, or removal of tissue.

Rezum Therapy Center of Excellence: SoCal Urology Institute

Dr. Gary Bellman has years of experience with this non-surgical, FDA-approved treatment for BPH. In 2020, the Southern California Urology Institute was named a Rezum Therapy Center of Excellence. The designation recognizes physicians who have a high degree of experience with Rezum Therapy, and commitment to delivering significant, lasting symptom relief to men suffering from BPH.

How does Rezum Therapy treat enlarged prostate?

Rezum Therapy uses a hand-held device, which is placed in the urethra. It contains water that is heated by radiofrequency energy, turning it into steam. This steam then targets the enlarged prostate tissue which is obstructing the urethra, (and the flow of urine). Each area of the excess tissue is targeted with steam for just 9 seconds. The steam effectively kills the cells of the prostate tissue, which will over time, be reabsorbed by the body.

What are the benefits of Rezum Therapy for BPH?

The benefits of Rezum Therapy include relief from the disruptive symptoms of an enlarged prostate such as:
  • Frequent urination
  • Urgent need to urinate
  • Weak stream
  • Dribbling
  • Pain during urination
  • Straining to urinate
  • Need to urinate multiple times at night
Rezum Therapy is an alternative to surgical treatments for enlarged prostate. There is no cutting, stitching, or removal of prostate tissue. Other benefits of Rezum Therapy for BPH may include:
  • No side effects from oral medications
  • Return to normal activities within a few days
  • Symptom improvement in as few as two weeks
  • Lasting relief from symptoms (4 years+)
  • No effects on sexual function (erections, ejaculation)
  • In-office treatment?no hospitalization required

Side Effects of Rezum Therapy for Enlarged Prostate

All medical procedures carry some risk. However, because Rezum Therapy is not a surgical procedure, risks such as scarring, and infection are greatly reduced.

Is Rezum Therapy for BPH painful?

Rezum Therapy is an outpatient procedure, that does not require hospitalization or general anesthesia. You will be given local anesthesia and a numbing medication for your ease and comfort. You may be provided with sedation if you're anxious or stressed about the procedure.

Will Rezum Therapy help with BPH symptoms?

Clinical studies show that symptom relief is often noticed within just two weeks of treatment. Symptom improvement continues for 3 months after treatment. Rezum Therapy also allows for the treatment of the median lobe of the prostate, which gives it an advantage over other treatments.

Men who are candidates for Rezum Therapy are typically those who are experiencing disruptive symptoms of BPH but do not wish to start or continue oral medications for an enlarged prostate. As an alternative to oral medications, surgery, and other minimally invasive treatments for BPH, Rezum Therapy is not shown to cause adverse effects on sexual function or ejaculation.
