What is BPH?
Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) is an enlargement of the prostate gland affecting about 50% of men by age 60, and up to 90% of men by age 85. This enlargement can compress the urethra, reducing the flow of urine from the bladder, and sometimes blocking it entirely. The symptoms of BPH include:
- Urinary frequency
- Irregular flow
- Weak stream
- Getting up at night to urinate
What is Rezūm Water Vapor Therapy?
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 costly BPH medications.
Talk with your doctor to determine if Rezūm Water Vapor Therapy is a good treatment for you based on your symptoms and treatment goals. You can start by taking the BPH Quiz, then bring a printout of the results with you to your appointment.

How Does Rezūm Water Vapor Therapy Work?
Rezūm Therapy is an in-office treatment for men looking to treat BPH, not just the symptoms. It uses natural water vapor to reduce the size of the prostate and provide lasting symptom relief from BPH symptoms without invasive surgery or the potential side effects of prescription drugs.
- During the Rezūm Therapy, natural water vapor is released throughout the targeted prostate tissue. When the steam contacts the tissue and turns back into water, all the stored energy is released, killing the excess prostate cells. Over time, the body’s natural healing response absorbs the dead cells and shrinks the prostate. With the extra tissue removed, the urethra opens, relieving BPH symptoms.
- Without the need for a permanent implant, this natural treatment option removes the excess BPH tissue and thereby treats the disease and not just the symptoms.
- Rezūm Therapy can be performed in a doctor’s office, clinic, or other outpatient settings. It can be performed under oral sedation or local anesthesia. There are options available for maximizing comfort during the procedure that will be determined by the physician.
