How the treatment works

Rewritten: Rezum Water Vapor Therapy is designed specifically for male patients aged 50 years and older who are experiencing symptoms of BPH. This outpatient procedure is conducted in the physician’s office and involves the targeted delivery of sterile water vapor to the prostate tissue through a series of brief 9-second treatments. The energy stored in the steam is released into the tissue, causing the prostate to shrink and allowing the urethra to open, thereby reducing BPH symptoms. The number of treatments needed will be determined by your physician and the size of your prostate.
