Powerful, Precise BPH Treatment

What is Rezūm?

Powered by Convective Radiofrequency (RF) Water Vapor Thermal Therapy technology, Rezūm applies RF thermal energy to safely and effectively treat lower urinary tract symptoms secondary to BPH. Each treatment uses 0.42ml of radiofrequency heated sterile water vapor which rapidly and uniformly disperses through the tissue interstices. The condensation of water vapor releases stored thermal energy. Cell membranes are gently denatured, thereby causing immediate cell death, the vasculature is closed, and there is denervation of the alpha adrenergic nerves within the treatment zone providing you with an efficient, uniform, predictable treatment. Over time, this ablated tissue is reabsorbed by the body’s natural healing response, reducing the volume of tissue allowing the urethra to open relieving LUTs symptoms.

Step One: Finding Patients
  • Patients who are watchful waiting and bothered by symptoms
  • Men who have elected to discontinue or who have chosen not to take BPH medications
  • Men who are not receptive to other minimally invasive or surgical BPH procedures
Step Two: Hands-On Training
  • Attend didactic session and hands-on simulator training course.
  • Prepare and practice for procedure days.
  • Schedule close to procedure day for best experience (evening before/morning of).
Step Three: Schedule Two Case Days
  • Training is brought to you and does not interfere with your normal clinic day
  • Recommended by Clinical Investigators and filed with FDA
  • Schedule an adequate cohort of patients for effective learning and evaluation
