Rezūm Water Vapor Therapy in Las Vegas

The Rezūm System is an advanced option for the treatment of an enlarged prostate, which is medically termed as benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). This technology became approved by the FDA in 2015, making it one of the newest solutions for BPH and the various urologic symptoms associated with it.

Minimally Invasive Treatment for BPH

Rezūm is a minimally invasive technology that utilizes the thermal energy in water vapor to shrink the excess tissue of the prostate. With an enlarged prostate, the excess tissue presses on the urethra and causes a variety of urinary problems, such as:

  • Frequent urge to urinate
  • A weak stream of urine
  • Obstructed urinary outflow

What Happens During Treatment with Rezūm?

In order to perform this procedure, one of our expertly trained urologists will inject the water vapor (steam) into the targeted prostate tissue. Once injected, the steam will begin to break apart legions that have formed by destroying their cells. With the legions gone, the urinary channel is now freely open as it should be, which will gradually resolve the patient’s urinary issues.

The Rezūm System is performed entirely within your provider’s office in approximately 5 minutes or less. This simple procedure will require a few days to take full effect, during which time patients will have a catheter in place to assist in urination until anticipated swelling subsides. Three days after your treatment is performed, you will return to Las Vegas Urology to have this catheter removed, and that’s it! Symptoms will continue to improve for months to come, though patients typically notice the greatest effect of the Rezūm System during the first two weeks after it is implemented.

This treatment is associated with only mild to moderate side effects, which generally consist of some discomfort soon after the procedure is performed. Of course, if you begin to notice any abnormal side effects or symptoms then you should contact your urologist to have them fully evaluated as soon as possible.
