Is the Rezum procedure approved by the FDA?
Recently approved by the FDA in 2015, makes it possible to perform a prostate surgery in 5 minutes without causing ejaculation and sexual dysfunctions.
What is Rezum procedure?
Rezum operation helps to treat a benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) by throwing steam through an instrument into the enlarged area of the prostate; the vapor carries energy that will be diffused into the molecules which will be killed and discarded by the immune system.
It lasts 5 to 10 minutes under local anesthesia and the number of vapor ejection depends on the volume of the prostate.
How does the Rezum procedure work?
The Rezum procedure is a minimally invasive treatment for benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), which is a noncancerous enlargement of the prostate gland. The procedure uses steam to shrink the enlarged prostate tissue, which helps to relieve symptoms such as difficulty urinating and frequent urination while preserving ejaculation.
During the Rezum procedure, a thin tube called a transurethral catheter is inserted through the urethra and into the prostate. The catheter is then used to deliver steam to the prostate tissue. The steam is generated by heating water in a small container that is connected to the catheter. The heat causes the prostate tissue to shrink, which reduces the size of the prostate and improves urinary flow.
The procedure is typically performed on an outpatient basis under local anesthesia or sedation, and typically takes around 10 minutes. After the procedure, patients may experience some discomfort or pain in the area, but this is usually mild and can be managed with over-the-counter pain medication. Most patients are able to return to normal activities within a few days.
The Rezum procedure has been shown to be effective in reducing symptoms of BPH and improving urinary flow. The procedure has a lower risk of complications compared to other BPH treatments such as TURP. However, as with any medical procedure, there may be potential risks and side effects, so it is important to discuss the benefits and risks with a urologist before deciding whether to undergo the Rezum procedure.

Frequently Asked Questions
Does Rezum affect sexual function?
Rezum Therapy is a minimally invasive treatment option for men with benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), which is a condition where the prostate gland grows in size and can cause urinary problems such as frequency, urgency, weak stream, and difficulty starting and stopping urination.
Rezum Therapy is designed to treat the underlying cause of BPH by reducing the size of the prostate gland, while preserving sexual function.
Is the Rezum procedure painful?
The Rezum procedure, which is a type of minimally invasive treatment for benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), is generally not considered to be a painful procedure. Most patients report only mild to moderate discomfort during the procedure and minimal to no pain afterwards.
However, everyone’s experience with the procedure can vary and some patients may experience more discomfort or pain than others. Your doctor will discuss the procedure with you and provide you with pain management options to help ensure that you are comfortable during the procedure and after. Additionally, following your doctor’s instructions for post-procedural care can help minimize any discomfort and promote a smoother recovery.
What is the success rate of the Rezum procedure?
The success rate of the Rezum procedure is generally considered to be high, with a large number of men reporting significant improvements in their symptoms of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) after undergoing the procedure.
Studies have reported improvement rates ranging from 80-90% for reducing urinary symptoms associated with BPH, with patients reporting improved urinary flow and reduced frequency of urination after the procedure.
It is important to note that individual results can vary and are dependent on a number of factors, including the size and location of the prostate, the severity of symptoms, and the patient’s overall health.
It is also important to consult with a qualified healthcare provider to determine if the Rezum procedure is the right choice for you and to discuss the risks and benefits of the procedure.
Does Rezum shrink the prostate?
Yes, Rezum is a minimally invasive procedure that can effectively shrink the prostate in men with benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). Rezum uses steam to destroy excess prostate tissue that is causing urinary symptoms, such as frequent urination, weak stream, or difficulty urinating.
During the Rezum procedure, a small device is inserted into the urethra, and water is heated to create steam. The steam is then injected into the prostate tissue, where it causes the cells to die and eventually be absorbed by the body. Over time, the prostate will shrink in size, which can alleviate BPH symptoms.
What are the restrictions after Rezum procedure?
After the Rezum procedure, there are a few restrictions that patients should follow to aid in the recovery process and prevent complications. Some common restrictions include:
- Avoiding heavy lifting or strenuous activity for several days following the procedure.
- Refraining from sexual activity for at least one week after the procedure.
- Avoiding sitting in a bathtub or hot tub for at least two weeks after the procedure.
- Drinking plenty of water to help flush the treated tissue out of the body.
- Following the prescribed medication regimen, which may include antibiotics or pain relievers.
- Keeping follow-up appointments with the urologist to monitor recovery and evaluate the effectiveness of the procedure.
It’s important for patients to discuss post-procedure restrictions and recovery guidelines with their healthcare provider to ensure the best possible outcome.
