Water Vapor Therapy
Rezūm Water Vapor Therapy is a natural alternative to surgery. It treats the cause of Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia, also known as BHP, so you can get back to your life.
If you find yourself waking up several times a night to go to the bathroom or feel like your day is constantly interrupted by the need for restroom breaks, you may be suffering from a common condition experienced as men age – an enlarged prostate. About half of all men 50 and older have an enlarged prostate and by the age of 85, it’s as high as 90%.
Common Symptoms include:
- Waking up several times at night to urinate
- Weak, interrupted urine stream
- Hard time starting and stopping
- Feeling a sudden urge to urinate
- Not sure your bladder is empty
- Dribbling at the end of your stream
- Painful or burning urination
- Inability to go when you feel the need
- Lack of control over urination
Your doctor may prescribe medicine to help shrink your prostate or relax muscles near it to ease symptoms. If the medications are no longer working or you’re unhappy with their side effects, you may be a candidate for a new minimally invasive procedure that provides lasting relief without surgery or medication.
Treatment Available at Faith Regional
Dr. Yemi, a urologist at Faith Regional Physician Services Urology in Norfolk, now offers Rezūm Water Vapor Therapy to treat your enlarged prostate and get you in control of your condition.
This short in-office procedure uses the natural energy stored in a few drops of water to shrink the prostate. So urine can flow freely. There are no incisions, no general anesthesia, and most patients return to regular activities within a few days.
Performed right in the office, natural water vapor is released throughout the targeted prostate tissue. When the steam contacts the tissue and turns back into the water, it releases energy, killing the excess prostate cells that squeeze the urethra. With the extra tissue removed, the urethra opens, reducing symptoms.
Most patients begin to experience symptom relief as soon as two weeks, and maximum benefit may occur within three months.
