Is Rezūm Therapy FDA Approved?

Rezūm technology became approved by the FDA in 2015 as a solution for enlarged prostate and the various urologic symptoms associated with it. Enlarged prostate commonly affects men over 50, but symptoms may also begin when you’re younger.

Who May Benefit from Rezūm Therapy?

An enlarged prostate can cause frustrating symptoms for men, including:

  • Frequent urination
  • Hesitancy in urination
  • Urgency to urinate
  • A weak urinary stream
  • Obstructed urinary outflow

Rezūm is a procedure that uses the natural energy stored in steam to shrink the prostate so that urine can flow freely. There are no incisions, and typically it does not require general anesthesia. You can benefit from this therapy if you have an enlarged prostate and are free from any kidney issues. Talk to your doctor about your medical history to see if you can benefit from Rezūm.

What to Expect

Rezūm therapy is performed within your provider’s office in just minutes. The entire therapy session will last less than 30 minutes.

What you can expect with Rezūm:

  • A healthcare provider will numb the area before the procedure to reduce discomfort.
  • The instrument goes through your urethra, so you won’t have incisions or need stitches.
  • Your doctor will inject the water vapor or steam into the targeted prostate tissue.
  • Once injected, the steam will begin to treat the hypertrophic prostate
  • The urinary channel will be more open, which will gradually resolve obstructive urinary issues.
  • Each individual treatment takes about 10 seconds. A few areas of the prostate can receive treatments during one procedure.
  • Your doctor will determine the number of treatments you need based on the size of your prostate.

After Rezūm Therapy

This simple procedure will require a few days to take full effect.

After the procedure you can expect:

  • To use a catheter to help you urinate until the swelling goes down
  • A few days after the procedure you’ll return to have this catheter removed
  • Urinary symptoms  are most noticeable after the first two weeks
