What is Rezūm?

Powered by Convective Water Vapor Energy (WAVE®) technology, Rezūm applies thermal energy to safely and effectively treat lower urinary tract symptoms secondary to BPH. Each treatment uses 0.42ml of 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.

Rezūm provides the following benefits:

  • Alternative to BPH medications1
  • Relieves symptoms safely and effectively2
  • Provides noticeable symptom improvement within two weeks
  • Simple in-office/out-patient therapy
  • Does not require general anesthesia
  • Preserves sexual and urinary functions2
  • Allows patients to return to regular activities within a few days2
