The procedure

Rezūm water vapour therapy is a simple, natural alternative to surgery that is designed to shrink an enlarged prostate gland, resulting in better quality of life for our patients.

Treatment with Rezūm goes right to the source of your Benign Prostate Hyperplasia (BPH). With no incisions or general anesthesia, there is less risk of side effects and very little down time. In fact, most patients return to performing all regular activities within a few days.

Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) — also called prostate gland enlargement — is a common condition as men get older. Recent analysis shows that 50% of men will be affected by BPH by the time they turn 60.

Rezūm water vapour therapy is designed to:

  • Decrease the size of the prostate
  • Unblock the flow of urine from the bladder
  • Decrease frequency of urination
  • Preserve sexual function

HOW DOES REZŪM WATER VAPOUR THERAPY WORK?

All men will develop some enlargement of the prostate as they age. Rezūm water vapour therapy works by using the natural energy stored in water to release steam that targets excess prostate tissue and relieves symptoms of BPH.

The prostate is accessed through the urethra using the ergonomically advanced Rezūm device. Once in the correct position, the device will emit steam that penetrates only the natural collagen barriers and prostate capsule.

The steam delivery lasts only seconds and is guided by a small camera that allows your provider to locate the prostate. When tackled by steam, the prostate shrinks to improve the pathway of urine in the urethra.

Benefits

The benefits for men include reducing a long list of symptoms that accompany BPH. Rezūm water vapour therapy goes beyond the physical improvements it can have for the body – Better quality of life and preserved sexual function contributes to emotional well-being and self-confidence.

The possible benefits of Rezūm water vapour therapy include:

  • Stronger urine flow
  • The ability to stop BPH medications with unwanted side effects
  • Minimal pain during the procedure
  • Symptom relief as early as 2 weeks after treatment
  • Short recovery period
  • Safe and quick treatment in a private setting
  • Improved symptoms for up to 5 years

Risks

Rezūm Water Vapor Therapy eliminates excess prostate tissue and relieves urinary symptoms caused by an enlarged prostate, or BPH. After treatment, the symptoms of BPH may worsen before improving during a 2-12 week healing process.

In rare cases, treatment may exacerbate BPH symptoms that affect the bladder neck and urinary system. Treatment delivery with the Rezūm device is extremely focused. Risks are reduced when administered by a properly trained specialist at Steinberg Urology.

PROCEDURE INFO

Men receive Rezūm Water Vapor Therapy at our established clinic in Montreal. The Rezūm device is inserted through the urethra to access the enlarged prostate gland. The device delivers steam that shrinks the prostate and eliminates problematic tissue.

Dr. Steinberg and his team accompany patients throughout the entire in office procedure. Men may feel minor discomfort during treatment. Local or oral sedation will be used to provide patients with the most comfortable experience possible.

1-2 hours may be spent in office, with actual treatment time lasting only seconds.

Patients usually return to regular activity between 2-7 days after treatment.

After treatment patients experience a normal inflammatory response that occurs around the prostate and surrounding structures. This can take 2-4 months to resolve and may entail swelling, restriction of urine flow, increased frequency of urination and other urinary tract side effects. During the healing process, these symptoms may worsen before getting better.

Men can start to see results in as little as two weeks after treatment. Results may continue to increase for up to 3 months.
