Rezūm™ Prostate Therapy
As men get older, the prostate gland can become enlarged, put pressure on the urethra, and obstruct the passage of urine from the bladder. An enlarged prostate gland, called benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), is usually not life-threatening but often annoying. The fellowship-trained urologists at Surgical Solutions Network’s private clinics offer a minimally invasive alternative to prostate surgery called Rezūm Water Vapor Therapy. Patients in Canada gain relief from this quick, simple treatment with no downtime.

What Are the Symptoms of an Enlarged Prostate?
Urinary symptoms associated with age-related enlargement of the prostate gland may include:
- Frequent urination during the day and night
- Hesitancy in urination
- Urgency to urinate
- A weak urinary stream
Does an Enlarged Prostate Mean You Have Cancer?
It is important to note that BPH is typically NOT associated with prostate cancer. If your PSA blood test is elevated and you are experiencing urinary symptoms, it is more likely you have BPH and not prostate cancer since BPH can also elevate your PSA levels. It is always recommended that you consult your physician to interpret your PSA levels.
What Are the Treatment Options for BPH (Enlarged Prostate)?
Treatment for urinary difficulties begins with medication such as alpha-blockers. If medication is ineffective and urinary symptoms worsen, surgery on the prostate gland may be warranted.
What Is Rezūm Water Vapor Therapy?
Rezūm is an innovative, minimally invasive treatment for BPH. Clinical studies show that many men living with BPH experience symptom relief with Rezūm Water Vapor Therapy while preserving their erectile and urinary function.
How Does the Rezūm Procedure Work?
Rezūm is performed as an outpatient procedure and is relatively quick—taking approximately 30 minutes. The surgeon inserts a scope and delivers sterile water vapour (steam) into the prostate gland in a very focal and precise way to remove the blockage and improve urine flow. This technique avoids the short and long-term side effects of other BPH treatments, including TURP and the Green Light Laser TURP.
What Should I Expect After Rezūm Therapy?
Though patient responses can vary, most men experience symptom relief as soon as 1 to 2 weeks after the treatment, and improvements continue for up to 3 months. Current clinical studies demonstrate sustained symptom improvement out to 4 years; studies are ongoing to determine longer-term patient outcomes. No long-term BPH treatment or medications will be required following your Rezūm procedure.
What Are the Risks?
All treatments have inherent and associated risks. The Rezūm System is intended to relieve symptoms and obstructions and reduce prostate tissue associated with BPH. Potential risks include but are not limited to painful urination (dysuria), blood in the urine (hematuria), blood in the semen (hematospermia), decrease in ejaculatory volume, suspected urinary tract infection (UTI), and urinary frequency, retention, or urgency. Your surgeon will review the risks with you during your consultation.
