Rezum Water Vapor Therapy for Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH)

If you have been diagnosed with Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH), your AUCNY doctor will offer therapy options, including Rezum Water Vapor Therapy.

What is Rezūm Water Vapor Therapy?

Rezum Water Vapor Therapy is a quick non-surgical treatment method which is performed in the AUCNY urologist’s office, without the necessity of general anesthesia. The enlarged prostate is subjected to 9-second pulses of sterile water vapor (steam) during multiple treatments to shrink the prostate and relieve the pressure placed upon the urethra. Although the procedure only takes a few minutes, the entire appointment may be one to two hours in length.

When the urethral pressure decreases, urinary flow improves with the preservation of sexual function. Two weeks to three months is the usual expected time frame for symptom improvement. Pain medication is used during the procedure but again, general anesthesia or surgical intervention is not a part of this procedure. Results may vary, so discuss this option with your AUCNY urologist.
