Rezum Treatment Turkey

What is Rezum therapy?

It is a method of evaporation of the tissues that cause obstruction in the urinary canal by using thermal water vapor energy in cases of benign prostate enlargement. Thus, the prostate shrinks and the urethra in the prostate is enlarged.

How is Rezum treatment done?

As in all other endoscopic prostate surgeries, it is advanced by entering from the tip of the penis with special tools and the prostate is reached. Then, with the help of needles placed in the prostate, water vapor is given to the prostate tissues, causing destruction in the cells that cause growth, and thus the prostate becomes smaller in the medium and long term.

Non-surgical solution to the prostate; Rezum

Since the REZUM method in prostate enlargement is performed endoscopically with an optical camera and imaging system and is performed in the operating room, it can be called surgery. However, on the other hand, it is also called 'non-surgical solution to the prostate' as it can be easily applied to the penis with local anesthesia and the patient can be discharged within 1-2 hours.

How long does Rezum last?

The rezum method used in the treatment of benign prostate enlargement is a shorter procedure compared to other prostate surgeries. Although the duration of the procedure varies according to the size of the prostate, the average time is 15 minutes.

How much does Rezum shrink the prostate?

Studies have reported that rezum treatment leads to approximately 30% reduction in prostate volume in 6 months.

Anesthesia in the treatment of Rezum

One of the most important advantages of Rezum treatment is that it can be easily performed with local anesthesia in patients with risky, elderly and many comorbidities.

Is the Rezum surgery painfull?

Rezum treatment can be easily performed without significant pain with local anesthesia applied to the penis and perineal area. However, in individuals who are worried about the procedure, it can be easily performed by applying spinal anesthesia and sedative drugs.

Advantages of Rezum therapy

  • Much less side effects
  • It can be applied in a short time with local anesthesia without requiring general or regional (spinal) anesthesia (so it can be safely applied in elderly patients with high anesthesia risk).
  • Does not require hospitalization
  • Bleeding does not occur during the procedure.
  • Erection functions are preserved.
  • The 'retrograde ejaculation', which is a side effect of other prostate surgeries during sexual intercourse, almost does not develop in this method.
