How the treatment works
Rezum Water Vapor is meant for male patients who are 50 years or older experiencing the symptoms of BPH. This procedure is performed in the doctor’s office, consisting of a series of 9-second treatments where sterile water vapour is released throughout the prostate tissue. When the steam contacts the prostate tissue, the stored energy is released into the tissue and shrinks the prostate. Once the extra tissue is removed, the urethra can open, and gradually, your symptoms of BPH will start to reduce. Your doctor and the size of the prostate will determine the number of treatments you will require.
