Rezum Q&A


What is Rezūm?

Rezūm water vapor therapy is a minimally invasive procedure developed by medical device manufacturer Boston Scientific to treat benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH).

BPH is a normal part of a man’s aging process. It usually isn’t serious but can present side effects that affect your quality of life. If you develop symptoms like urinary incontinence, a weak stream, or have to get up several times each night to urinate, contact Comprehensive Urology immediately.

Who is a candidate for Rezūm therapy?

You might be a candidate for Rezūm water therapy if you:

  • Are 50 or older
  • Have a prostate volume of between 30cm3 ≤ 80cm3
  • Don’t want to take medication for BPH
  • Don’t want to undergo surgery for BPH

 

After reviewing your medical records, discussing your symptoms, and a physical exam, your Comprehensive Urology provider develops a custom treatment plan.

How does Rezūm therapy work?

Rezūm water therapy is an outpatient procedure that takes one appointment.

 

During treatment, your Comprehensive Urology provider uses sterile water vapor to carefully shrink your excess prostate tissue. As your prostate shrinks, your urethra opens up, making it easier to urinate. Your prostate will continue to shrink in the days and weeks after Rezūm therapy. 

Is Rezūm therapy painful?

Rezūm therapy is safe and usually well-tolerated but can cause minor discomfort. Your Comprehensive Urology provider can prescribe oral sedation or local anesthesia if you have low pain tolerance.

When will I experience results from Rezūm water therapy?

After Rezūm water therapy, many men experience a significant reduction in their urge to urinate. Some people notice relief right away, but for others, it takes several weeks. Most men experience the maximum benefits about 12 weeks after their first treatment.*

What is recovery like after Rezūm water therapy?

After Rezūm water therapy, take it easy. Drink fluids and get plenty of rest. Avoid strenuous exercise and other intense physical activity for at least a week. Your Comprehensive Urology provider will make recovery recommendations that align with your age, level of physical fitness, and needs.
