Rezūm Therapy

Rezūm Water Vapor Therapy is a non-surgical therapy that uses the natural energy stored in water vapor, or steam, to shrink enlarged prostates caused by BPH. It eliminates excess prostate tissue that is pressing on the urethra to improve the flow of urine.

How Does it Work?

Rezūm Therapy is performed right in clinic, and completed in one short appointment.

During each 9-second treatment, sterile water vapor is released throughout the targeted prostate tissue. When the steam contacts the prostate tissue, all the stored energy is released into the tissue. Your doctor will determine the amount of treatments you need, based on the size of your prostate.

Over time, your body’s natural healing response absorbs the treated tissue, shrinking the prostate. With the extra tissue removed, the urethra opens, reducing BPH symptoms. Most patients begin to experience symptom relief in as soon as two weeks, and maximum benefit may occur within three months. Patient responses can and do vary.

Rezūm Water Vapor Therapy is a minimally invasive procedure that uses the natural energy stored in a few drops of water to treat the excess prostate tissue causing BPH symptoms. 

So you can get back in the game quickly. No need to be in the hospital. And no need to continue taking BPH medications.

Before the Procedure

Your doctor may ask you to stop anticoagulants (blood thinners) a few days to a week prior to your procedure. Additionally, antibiotics may be prescribed in order to reduce the chances of getting an infection. Your doctor will discuss any pain medications that will be used.

During the Procedure

The actual procedure takes only minutes; however, plan on spending approximately two hours for the entire appointment. You will receive pain medication prescribed by your doctor for the procedure. Plan to have a driver for your appointment, unless your doctor tells you that you can drive yourself home.

After the Procedure

After your procedure, continue oral antibiotics as prescribed by your doctor. Your doctor may recommend a catheter for a few days to ease urination during healing. Avoid activities that may irritate your prostate. Consult your doctor for specific recommendations.


While the actual Rezūm procedure only takes a couple of minutes, patients typically spend around two hours for the entire appointment due to recovery and observation after the operation.


If you experience discomfort, it is recommended that you take a mild pain medication, as recommended by your doctor, try a warm bath or sitting on a hot water bottle, or consider temporarily removing things like caffeine, chocolate and alcohol from your diet.

Within a few days, you will most likely be able to resume normal activities and most patients will experience noticeable symptom improvement in as soon as two weeks.
