Those who have experienced the symptoms of Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) will know that, although the condition is not usually life threatening, it certainly threatens your way of life.
From constant visits to the bathroom to recurrent urinary tract infections (UTI), BPH symptoms can quickly become exasperating.
Understanding the condition, and knowing that there are effective treatments available, can certainly help you see that there actually is light at the end of the tunnel; and it comes in the form of a few drops of water.
From drug therapies, minimally invasive procedures and more traditional surgeries, several treatments are available to patients, depending on their age, lifestyle, expectations and, of course, the severity of their symptoms.
The Rezūm water vapour therapy is quickly becoming a preferred minimally invasive treatment for the millions of men diagnosed with an enlarged prostate, mostly because it has fewer side effects than other treatments.
Rezūm is a groundbreaking new treatment for benign prostatic hyperplasia that uses the thermal energy of steam delivered in targeted, controlled doses. The treatment consists of injecting bursts of vapour into the prostate to ablate the excess tissue that presses against the urethra. The water vapour therapy (Rezūm) relieves the symptoms of BPH by essentially shrinking the prostate. Although the procedure is merely a few minutes long, the results are remarkable.
Clinical data has shown that the Rezūm Water Vapour Therapy is safe and effective in relieving lower urinary tract symptoms due to BPH. The treatment has demonstrated to offer significant, durable improvement of BPH symptoms (4 years or more), with little to no side effects. The Rezūm therapy has already successfully treated more than 35 000 patients worldwide and SanoMed Prostate is proud to be the first medical facility in the province of Quebec and Eastern Canada to offer this procedure.
